Northamptonshire ACRE is proud to be celebrating 75 years of supporting the rural communities of Northamptonshire. To highlight the work of the charity, over the last 75 years and today, and to look at what the future holds for our rural communities, Northamptonshire ACRE is holding a series of free online talks during its anniversary week beginning Monday 26th July 2021. These online sessions are open to anyone who has an interest in rural affairs, irrespective of whether you live in a village or a more urbanised area. A programme of events is available to download at https://www.northantsacre.org.uk/celebrating-75-years-service-rural-communities and the opening speech by Lord Benyon, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for DEFRA talking about Northamptonshire ACRE's work can be found at: https://www.northantsacre.org.uk/ More »
Northamptonshire ACRE is an independent charity that was originally designated a Rural Community Council (RCC) by the Government on 26th July 1946 with the aim of supporting the rural communities of Northamptonshire. In March 2000 the charity changed its name to Northamptonshire ACRE but remained designated as a Rural Community Council.
Like the other RCCs set up across England (one in each county), the charity is a community development organisation, supporting Parish Councils, Village Halls and community groups to help them thrive, be inclusive and economically active. The work covers a range of topics from affordable rural housing to assisting groups to set up a community shop or pub but over the last 18 months much of the focus and work has been on 3 areas: setting up and supporting Good Neighbour schemes; support for the many village hall and community centre members; the issue of rural food insecurity in the county.
Garth Lugar-Mawson, Chair of Trustees, Northamptonshire ACRE said, "To have been supporting rural communities for 75 years is a great milestone to have reached and the charity is very proud of the work that it has carried out over those years with our members. The programme that has been put together for our 75th anniversary week reflects the diverse range of support we offer and I hope everyone attending enjoys the sessions as much as we have enjoyed being part of Northamptonshire ACRE".
