The county is the top area in the country for community activism, a report shows.

The report by Co-operatives UK has analysed how many ‘local run’ enterprises – such as where people buy and run community businesses – there are in the country.

In Oxfordshire, 9,000 people have invested in 10 community share schemes, raising £5m in total.

It includes schemes such as Cultivate Oxfordshire and the Osney Hydro Lock Scheme.
