Mark receives his award from Minister for the North East, Nick Brown MP.
It's been a while since I blogged properly, so apologies to Cllr. Mark Burton in Harrowgate Hill that I failed to post on his success in winning the 'Newsletter of the Year' at the Labour Party Regional awards in Sunderland.
Competition amongst the various Constituency Labour Parties is stronger for this award than any other, so it was a real feather in Mark's cap, as well as some reflected glory for Darlington CLP too.
For those of you who haven't seen Mark's Little Red Rosette, you can do so here. I've been shoving newsletters through letterboxes all over the country for the best part of thirty years, and Mark's newsletter is the most professional and informative that I've come across. It's completely unlike a traditional flyer from a politician, and all the better for it. Mark's setting the bar very high for the rest of the Labour Group here in Darlington.
