DTW scoops national media relations award for New Wear Crossing work

Chris, Karen and Lorna with the PSCA 2017 Winner Award

It was a quiet night at the UK Public Sector Communications Awards last week.

Nothing to talk about at all except we only went and won the award for Best Use of Media Relations for our work on the New Wear Crossing with Sunderland City Council!

Really good night and hugely valuable conference in the afternoon. Our award was the icing on the cake and we were quite pleased as you can tell.

It was also great to see so many other great public sector communicators rewarded for their efforts, and a special mention has to go to the team at Greater Manchester Police for their phenomenal comms work in the wake of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack – worthy winners is something of an understatement.

Great company to be in, a real reward for the effort and creativity the team has shown on the New Wear Crossing Project over the past two years and lot of valuable learning.
