he Centre for Regional Economic & Social Research from Sheffield Hallam University conducted a survey recently of the Voluntary & Community Sector (VCS) of Nottinghamshire. The survey was commissioned by Notts County Council and was sent to all voluntary & community groups in the County.
The findings of the survey were then collated and presented at a meeting of all interested groups at County Hall. There followed discussions of ways to explore challenges and opportunities and to develop plans for more collaborative working for the benefit of Nottinghamshire’s communities.
The Ruddington & District Choral Society won the prize of a laptop for entering the survey. It is being presented here to Pat Beale, their Publicity Officer.
