The Somerset Remembers project team has been awarded Somerset County Council’s ‘Team Award for Collaboration’.
The team were commended on their work with young people and retired residents, schools and colleges, community and special interest groups, volunteers, and other public sector organisations. The project blog was also praised.
The judging panel said: “This project has sparked and supported collaboration between communities across the county. Where this team’s approach has been so marvellously collaborative is in its range of contributors; they have invited individuals and groups to help shape the project and in doing so, Somerset’s contribution to a national commemoration has been truly collaborative.”
