Working alongside

On the 1st of November 1947, Town and Parish Councils from the County of Buckinghamshire came together for the Inaugural Meeting of Buckinghamshire Association of Local Councils. This remarkable collaborative which has sustained both its members and our local government sector, will celebrate its 75th birthday in 2023.

Town and Parish Councils are perhaps the final bastion of a full democracy. We are the closest point to those we claim to represent and equally, the closest point to be judged by that same audience. Recognising the power of working together to educate, lobby and improve our communities, Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Association of Local Councils, as it is now known, and it’s members have faced challenge and judgement, earned respect and compliments, on the real work they do in their communities.

So for our 75th birthday together, we will be celebrating our Communities, looking at practical ways to support and further enrich the wide diversity that we represent, pooling our knowledge and resources and looking further afield for ideas and inspiration. We very much look forward to your participation in special events this year recognising this incredible milestone.

Happy 75th Birthday BMKALC!
