Rural Heritage Survey
As part of the Rural Community Network's newest heritage project, 'Ours to Share', we are undertaking a survey to gain a better understanding of what heritage means to rural communities, what types of projects rural community groups have been involved in and what support is needed in rural areas in regards to heritage. This will help shape the future of this project in relation to funding opportunities, training, and events. Thanks for taking part.
