The first item in this enews is a message from our Secretary-General, explaining what CLGF is doing to ensure that our work continues. Our thoughts are with everyone at this time and we would like to pay tribute to local government everywhere, for the dedication in continuing to provide services that are vital to our communities. if you want to share your experiences and good practices with other members we will facilitate that across the network through the website. Please email us at 
We stand with you all. Stay safe.
