Abstract

The paper reviews the provision in England's villages of six key services--village shops, post offices, village halls, schools for 5 to 11 year olds, pubs and public/community transport. The context is the fundamental difficulty of delivering high quality services via widespread outlets in sparsely populated areas. Evidence is drawn from the qualitative reports on rural services commissioned by the Countryside Agency and researched and written annually from 1996 to 1999 by each of England's 38 Rural Community Councils. The future of village services in a rapidly changing context is seen to lie with a combination of local innovation, collaboration between service providers, partnerships between the statutory, private and voluntary/community sectors, the judicious introduction of information and communication technology and outright subsidy.
