Council Matters

“Council Matters” Our APSE thanks to unsung heroes

 
Written and performed by Longfella, Tony Walsh (c) Longfella Ltd 2020 All rights reserved www..longfella.co.uk
 
Renowned poet Tony Walsh was commissioned by APSE to create a very special poem in thanks to all the unsung heroes in local government who have worked on the frontline, and behind the scenes, as officers and as councillors, to support our communities throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic. We are sure you will agree ‘Council Matters’ is a wonderful way to celebrate the local government family at this time of year, after all of the hard work in 2020. Please share the poem on social media and tag @apseevents @LongfellaPoet and #CouncilMatters
 
We thank those of you who supported this project by kindly sending in their stories and images which contributed to developing this tribute to you the Local Government Family. We hope we have done you proud! 
 
 

This poem was first performed at the APSE Annual Service Awards 2020 on 16 December 2020.
