Those who live and work in the Cambridgeshire Fens LEADER area will have the strongest knowledge of challenges that need to be addressed in the local rural economy.
As such, Cambridgeshire ACRE is keen to involve local people, organisations and businesses in planning the Local Development Strategy for the 2014 – 2020 LEADER programme.
We want people who might benefit from this funding to join us to explore the opportunity further and to contribute ideas to shape our bid, so that it reflects what the local rural economy really needs. To this end we are holding three workshops in June:
For those involved in farming, micro enterprise or small business:
Tuesday 3 June 2014, 3.30pm – 6.00pm
Lakeside Lodge, Fen Road, Pidley, Huntingdon, PE28 3DF
For those involved in tourism, cultural and heritage activities:
Tuesday 10 June 2014, 5.30pm – 8.00pm
Oliver Cromwell Hotel, High Street, March, PE15 9LH
For those involved in rural services and village renewal:
Tuesday 17 June 2014, 3.30pm – 6.00pm
E-Space North, 181 Wisbech Road, Littleport, CB6 1RA
