Rutlanders are amazing! Community Champions evening

I was delighted to welcome over 300 guests to the Officers’ Mess at Kendrew Barracks yesterday evening, to celebrate the amazing work of Rutland community heroes and volunteers.

Referring to a recent survey that put Rutland at the top of ‘happy places to live’, my speech to our community champions and assembled guests included:

“Rutland is a happy place not only because we have beautiful countryside and stunning market towns but because we have a community culture of altruism, doing our best for others and volunteering…”

Thank you to everyone who attended this community champions event. It has been a true honour having the chance to celebrate the successes of our community together, at Kendrew.
