Agenda announced: Suffolk Village Halls and Community Buildings Conference 2017

Organised by Community Action Suffolk, the Suffolk Village Halls and Community Buildings Conference brings together all those involved with village halls and community buildings.

It gives you the chance to network with others, hear from national speakers and learn new skills and practices to take back to your building.

Following the success of last year’s event at Great Barton, we invite trustees, officers, staff and volunteers involved with community buildings to attend this information based event.

The Suffolk Village Halls and Community Buildings Conference 2017 is on Saturday 15 July 2017 at Blackbourne Community Centre from 9:30am to 3:30pm, costing £25 (lunch and refreshments provided).
