More than a hundred staff gathered at the County Cricket Ground in Taunton on Friday 29 January for Somerset County Council’s annual Staff Awards celebration event.
Shortlisted from over 240 nominations, the winners and highly commended staff were warmly applauded by colleagues as they collected awards for going the extra mile and making a difference to customers and communities they work with.
Staff from services across the organisation were represented, including Adult Social Care, Learning Disabilities, Children’s Social Care, Highways and back-office support.
They were joined by senior leaders and members as well as guest speaker, Nicolas Hamilton, who gave an inspirational talk on teamwork and overcoming adversity to achieve his dream of becoming a rising star of the British motorsport scene.
Congratulations to the winners as well as everyone nominated and shortlisted for the awards and thanks to everyone who submitted nominations for the awards.
Special thanks also to our sponsors, Penna; learningpool; Somerset Skills & Learning CIC; and Reed.
