How often do you use your local pub, village shop, post office, library?
How important are they to you and your community?
Due to changes in our lifestyle habits, the increase in out of town superstores and reductions in public sector funding - how confident can we be that these services will survive? Is it important? And do we need to take action to ensure that they are still here in 5 or 10 years time?
Join the Leicestershire Rural Partnership to explore these dilemmas and consider what communities and partners can do to reverse the downward trend of village services. Speakers include the Plunkett Foundation, Pub is the Hub and Leicestershire County Council library service. More »
