Congratulations to Central Bedfordshire Council, the winning team at the Young Local Authority of the Year 2023. The title was won for their employers by Gianluca Guerriero and Kate Perry who gave a presentation described as 'confident and stylish' and with 'exemplary teamwork' on the environmental consequences having children. The adjudicators added that their On the Spot on 'the best colour', was 'light and frothy but exuded charm and a gentle teasing humour'. Test Valley Borough Council were runners-up, Maidstone Borough Council and South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council (a joint entry) were highly commended, and North Kesteven District Council were commended.
