We have received the following feedback from our member authorities about the Fairer Funding campaign:

"Excellent news and thank you to Sparse."
Terry King, Councillor for the Exton ward in Rutland
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything Rural Services Network has done in gaining extra rural funding for rural Districts. You are all stars and you should give yourself a massive pat on the back – How wonderful to have had all your hard work repaid in real money for residents. We will certainly pay huge tribute to your work in our forthcoming press releases. I can't thank you enough."
Lisa Buckle, South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council
"Thank you for the e-mail - it is certainly good news, lets hope the push continues as there now seems to be some momentum."
Mandy Chilcott, West Somerset District Councillor
"Congratulations on the increase in the rural delivery grant as without your work in the background I am sure this would not have happened."

"Well done everyone"
Cllr M Shineton, Shropshire Council
"Thanks for this- and congratulations on your campaign.
I know a number of our Hampshire MPs were very helpful in lobbying the Government"
