Action Acton have been given a ‘Big Society’ award by the Prime Minister for their work on Acton Market.
Action Acton set up the street market at The Mount six years ago aiming to bring life back into the town centre and encourage business start-ups.
David Cameron said: “High Streets are the heart of a community, they give people a place to come together, provide essential services and create local jobs and investment. Action Acton has … created a vibrant market that has not only become a vital community hub, it has also created employment and training opportunities.”
Just over 80 “Big Society” Awards have been made nationally since 2010.
