2014 marks the 40th birthday of East Northamptonshire Council and to celebrate, staff and councillors gathered for a commemorative photograph.
Nearly 50 council officers were joined by the council leader, Steven North and the Chairman, Gill Mercer for a forty shaped photo to mark the historic occasion.
Cllr North said: "It's wonderful to be able to celebrate 40 years of serving the community.
"Residents who have lived in the district since 1974 will have seen some big changes in the district including major improvements to our towns, leisure services and waste and recycling services, the successful transfer of our housing stock to Spire Homes and many advances in the way we do business with our residents.
"I would like to pay tribute to all councillors and staff, past and present, for their service to the communities we serve and look forward to the future."
