MAJOR BOOST TO THE CAMPAIGN FOR A RURAL STRATEGY:
The Independent Food, Farming & Countryside Commission hosted by the RSA in its report launched on Tuesday 16th July ‘Our Future in the Land’ has added its voice to the calls by the RSN and the House of Lords Select Committee for a comprehensive Rural Strategy (more to follow)
The RSN currently provide the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group on Rural Services. It is a cross party Group of MP’s from rural constituencies that come together around 4 times a year to promote debate on the provision of rural services and includes MPs and Lords.
We have a rural fire group which aims to bring together those fire authorities delivering services in rural areas.
This section includes rural news stories.
We host an Annual Rural Conference which has become a key event in the rural calendar, bringing together expert speakers to share their views with rural delegates.
We provide opportunities for members to network at our regional seminars, main meetings, Annual Conference and electronically through the RSN.
We provide 6 regional seminar/networking meeting events around the country each year. These focus on different rural issues to bring together service providers to focus on these issues.
