RCCE’s Essex Village of the Year competition has returned after an absence of four years, accompanied for the first time by a series of Rural Community Awards for village halls, community enterprises and community and voluntary groups.  Essex has a wonderful variety of villages where local people are doing great things to sustain and strengthen community life, much of it through the efforts of volunteers. RCCE wants to celebrate and reward these efforts, especially given the challenges presented in recent years by the pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis.
