From rubbish collections to rural libraries Cambridgeshire charity led the way

Cambridgeshire ACRE, the Rural Community Council for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough was founded in the aftermath of the Great War and the agricultural depression of the 1920s to help local communities to shoulder responsibility for rural life, which was underthreat due to the disappearance of old land owners. In its early days, the organisation worked with local government to help organise voluntary efforts and test out pioneering ideas such as rubbish disposal schemes and the loaning of books to rural areas to form the first libraries.
