NALC is calling for local councils to nominate community business champions
With the Plunkett Foundation opening their Rural Community Ownership Awards, the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is encouraging local (town and parish) councils to put forward rural community businesses who have had a positive impact in their local community.
The awards are an annual celebration of the achievements of rural community businesses in tackling rural issues across the UK and also raise awareness of the unique contributions community businesses make to creating resilient, thriving and inclusive rural communities.
Cllr Sue Baxter, chairman of NALC, said: “NALC think this is a great initiative and it really does raise awareness about what community businesses are doing for rural areas. We know many of our local councils work closely with community businesses and are encouraging them to nominate their community business champions to the awards.”
Deadline for entries is 14 September 2018.
