Congratulations to the winners

Congratulations to all the winners, highly commended, finalists and commended in the 16 categories of The MJ Awards 2015 which culminated with the winners being announced at the gala night at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London on June 18th attended by over 900 people. A great night was had by all and we enjoyed anecdotes of political life from our presenter, former foreign secretary William Hague.

A big thank you goes to our sponsors without whom the awards would not take place. They are now a vital part of the local government calendar and The MJ award trophies are on display in countless foyers and town and county hall cabinets up and down the country.

Most importantly of all we want to thank all the local authority teams who entered our awards. For without their excellent services there would be no awards at all!

We look forward to seeing you all next year.
