A Derbyshire group which supports people living and working in the county’s rural areas fears the threatened withdrawal of Government funding could have a serious impact on its future.

The Action with Communities in Rural England, including Rural Action Derbyshire, says it has been advised to expect no further funding from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

RAD is urging supporters to sign the ACRE petition at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/73418 and write to Defra secretary Elizabeth Truss or email defra.helpline@defra.gsi.gov.uk.
