Cambridgeshire ACRE is the rural community council for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
We provide encouragement, practical help and support to communities throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to enable them to plan and develop as vibrant places to live and work. We identify what local people need and the issues that are important to them. We then champion these things with those who set policy and make decisions in the county, helping to ensure that rural Cambridgeshire has a voice.
We can help your community in a whole range of ways, so why not look around our site to find out more.
