December 20, 2011 Oxfordshire Rural Community Council
The recent publication of the Mary Portas Review on the future for the High Street has drawn attention to how small towns will maintain their vibrancy and coincides with the ending of SEEDA’s Small Rural Towns Programme (SRTP), the latter aiming to support such small market towns across the SE region.
To focus on this issue and celebrate what has been achieved during the last seven years of the SRT programme, Oxfordshire Rural Community Council that has responsibility for running the programme in Oxfordshire, invite you to an event in Carterton, on 17th January 2012, that location chosen chiefly because Carterton has been a recipient of SRTP funds and has as a result built a suitable facility, namely their Community Centre.
If you have participated in the programme in your town and would like to share your experience with others, if you belong to a community group that would like to follow suit, have an interest in helping small rural towns in the county to thrive, want to hear how community groups have achieved their goals and want an update on help that might be available in future, this event is for you.
Places are limited but free of charge so do book as soon as you can, but before Tuesday 10th Janby returning the booking form to Elizabeth Stevens at ORCC (address below) or
e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephoning 01865 883488 and ask to book onto the SRTP event.
