Village Halls Week- 20th-26th January 2020

Village Halls Week is taking place from Monday 20th– 26th January 2020.  It is a national celebration of village halls and community buildings, their volunteers and the services they offer their communities. It is a chance to showcase your facility and a chance to attract new volunteers and share ideas for future ideas for the hall.

We have arranged a range of FREE networking lunches through the week along with a guest speaker.

On Saturday 25th January it is the ‘National Open Day’. This is a good chance to open your hall or community centre to try and attract new users, trustees and groups, whilst boosting community engagement.
