We are Gold!

Saffron Walden Town Council is delighted to have been awarded a “Gold Status” for its management, leadership and administration of employment matters and HR management systems.  The annual review noted measures introduced to support staff during covid, finding the Council had “pulled together” to address any matters of concern and had taken a pragmatic but safe stance in continuing to offer its services to the public.

Town Mayor, Cllr Richard Porch said “I remain immensely proud and impressed by all Town Council staff, who have demonstrated resilience, determination and empathy during such difficult covid times.  In the early days of covid, staff were redeployed in delivering prescriptions to our residents and more latterly they are concentrating on ensuring the town’s assets are in good order, arranging events (such as the Christmas lights switch on) and supporting the community in a number of ways.  Plans are already underway for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022.  I would like to thank the Town Council staff and its Members for their continued efforts at this time and also our community for their support, kindness and co-operation as Council services adapt to our changing environment.
