Rural Community Awards

08 June 2015

The Housing Executive is excited to launch the second Rural Community Awards competition and are inviting all constituted rural community groups to take part.

  • Do you have an active community group?
  • Are you proud of your local neighbourhood?
  • Is there a thriving community spirit where you live?
  • Does your community come together to improve their local environment?
  • Would you like to win 1,000 to make a difference in your community?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions the Housing Executive would like to hear from you.

In order to help and support local communities in their efforts to make their local neighbourhoods a better place to live, the Housing Executive have initiated a prize fund of 4,000 (four prizes of 1,000). There are two awards:

  • The Cleaner and Greener Award
  • The Community Spirit Award

Within each category there are two prizes:

  • Village population less than 1,000
  • Village population of 1,000 - 5,000

Further information and an application form are available here or by contacting Eoin McKinney on 028 9031 8524 or eoin.mckinney@nihe.gov.uk.

Applications must be returned to the Housing Executive Rural Unit by Friday 26 June 2015 at 4.00pm.
