The apprentices will be among thousands taking part in the event which has been organised by the Local Government Association and which runs for 24 hours from 00.01.

Ian Gallin, chief executive of West Suffolk Council, said: "Every year we join councils across the UK for the Local Government Association #OurDay event.

"It gives us a chance to show and highlight our services as well as the outcomes we deliver everyday for our communities and business.

"We are really pleased to employ apprentices as they are the future of local government. As a former apprentice myself I am delighted that our current crop of apprentices are taking over and helping not only deliver services but #OurDay as well."

At the end of last year's #OurDay more than 10,000 Twitter accounts had participated, with the hashtag trending at number one on Twitter for most of the day.
