Communities Together Award 2023 Winners

Our Communities Together Award winners for 2023 were The Friends of Hurst Farm Community Group based in Matlock, Derbyshire. They believe that Hurst Farm is a wonderful place to live, with wonderful characters.

Local residents can visit the Farmers View pub, get involved in their older people Golden Club, attend warm hubs sessions or shop at the Farmers larder, which was originally set up to tackle food waste and has provided such a crucial service during the ongoing cost-of-living crisis.
