Village Halls & Community Buildings Conference 5 December 2017

The 5th Village Halls Conference took place on 5th December in Little Hadham Village Hall and was hailed a great success by all those attending.  We were particularly pleased as we had to make a last minute decision whether to go ahead following an organisational change. 45 people representing Village Halls and Community Buildings, statutory and voluntary agencies and suppliers of services all contributed to an absorbing event.  We heard about Senior Watch, Technology for Hall Management Systems, Social Prescribing, GDPR Data Protection changes, #VillageHallsWeek 22-25 January, Locality funding, a proposal to form a Coalition of Halls and much useful advice and information from ACRE and CDA Herts.

Thank you to everyone involved for their support and making it happen especially CDA Herts, Little Hadham Village Hall, John Harwwod-Bee, Susan Lankester and the Stallholders whose contributions made the event financially possible.
