“I wish we had started working with Smart Communities earlier, as their support and knowledge is proving really helpful. They quickly understood what we were aiming to do with the project, so have given relevant and focussed advice. They critiqued our Awards 4 All application, which was successfuland have been patient with working with a group of volunteers.” Cotford St Luke Community Project
