We are proud of the many businesses that have grown and flourished in Rural Oxford. To celebrate a few of these success stories, we decided to develop the #WeGrowTogether video series campaign with a few of our community partners. Alongside Community Employment Services, Community Futures Oxford, Tourism Oxford and The Small Business Centre, we were able to showcase another eleven Rural Oxford businesses this fall through social media and a series of videos. Each business has its own unique success story and its own reason for choosing Rural Oxford as home.
