Site Web Awards
The Brookmans Park Newsletter has been commended for several national awards since it was set up in 1998. In 2000 it won one award outright. All were with the New Statesman New Media Awards. This site has never entered itself for an awards competition, but has always been nominated by users.
In addition, the site played some part in the award of the Hertfordshire Information Communication Technology Village of the Year 2004 Award.
- In 2004, the site was commended as runner up in the Community and Information section of the New Media Awards. The shortliste was drawn up from a nominations list of more than 100 sites nationwide.
- In 2002, the site came runner-up in the Online Communities category of the New Statesman New Media Awards, behind the popular Friends Reunited site. According to the judges, commendation means, "that the judges found the site excellent in design, content and execution, finding it very difficult indeed to choose the winner".
- In 2000, the site won the Overall Merit award, again in the New Statesman New Media Awards, for having, "served the public interest in developing a democratically accountable civil society during the previous 12 months".
- In 1999, the site was commended in the New Statesman Awards for, "the use of new technology in empowering individuals locally."
