Surrey Heath Borough Councillor shortlisted for national award


Wednesday, 4 October, 2017

Congratulations to Cllr Paul Deach, shortlisted for the Technology and Digital Award in the LGiU & CCLA’s C’llr Achievement Awards 2017.

The Deepcut and Mytchett ward councillor has been a trailblazer among councillors for digital engagement with the public. He has excelled in building an online audience via blogs, websites and social media.

One of his major successes has been through video engagement with the community with content that is relevant to residents.

Cllr Deach was nominated for the award by SHBC Executive Head of Corporate Richard Payne, who said: “At SHBC we have been working in close collaboration with Cllr Deach for the last 18 months, focusing on communicating with harder to reach groups in our community.

“The success of initiatives such as #TalkSurreyHeath, our online live-streamed Q & A sessions, has benefitted greatly from his technical expertise.

“We wish Cllr Deach the best of luck at the awards ceremony in November.”

The LGiU and CCLA’s C’llr Achievement Awards celebrate the important work of councillors across England and Wales.
