Defra (the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) has confirmed that it will maintain its £2.3m investment in the ACRE Network for 2015/16. This is good news for our organisation and the nationwide ACRE Network of rural community councils. We would like to thank everyone who showed their support for Northants ACRE, all the other rural councils and the work we do. The level of support we have received from our partner agencies, our members and the public has been extraordinary and very gratifying.
We could not have achieved this without your help. Thank you.
We are expanding our Bulk Oil scheme to offer Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) in cylinders and for bulk tanks. This is in conjunction with Swift Energy Consultants Ltd and FloGas. There is no additional cost to ordering LPG as it is covered under the bulk oil membership. For more details click here.
Many thanks to everyone who has kindly donated spades, hoes, rakes and even mowers to the Community Payback scheme. The group are extremely grateful as these tools enable them to continue with their excellent work of ground maintenance in communities. If you would like to know more about the Community Payback scheme or would like to nominate a project in your area, please click on the Community Payback logo to go to the Northants Probation Trust website for more information.
