Royal Borough schemes shortlisted for national awards

Two pioneering schemes put in place by the council have been shortlisted for national awards.

The Improvement and Efficiency Awards honour the dedication of public service teams working behind the scenes to keep much relied upon services going under financial pressures.

The Royal Borough's care bank programme, which provides 'time credit' rewards for people who help old or vulnerable people, and the school meal cashless payment system are both in the running.

Cllr David Burbage, leader of the council, said: "Being shortlisted shows our efforts are being recognised nationally and by our peers in local government."

The ceremony will take place on Tuesday in London.
