Training and Events

During the year we hold several events to support the network of village halls and community buildings in the county.  This enables trustees to come together to share their knowledge, experiences and best practice.  The events also provide an opportunity to hear from some interesting speakers on a variety of subjects relating to the role of village hall trustees.

Please click on the link below to view our popular coffee morning programme for 2018.


In response to trustee feedback through our annual survey we will be running a pilot evening event to ensure the programme is as accessible to as many trustees and volunteers as possible.  If this event proves to be popular we can of course offer more evening events.

Please join us on:

Wednesday 27th June – 18:30 till 20:30

Swaffham Prior Village Hall, High Street, Swaffham Prior, CB21 5BS

Our discussion topic will be on applying for funding and running improvement projects at your hall – we will be joined by Joy Walker one of our Community Building Mentors to talk about her experiences as a trustee.  This event will be a great opportunity to meet other village hall trustees and to hear their experiences.
