Training and Events

At the moment we are unable to offer our usual programme of networking and training events visiting village halls around the County. We hope that we will be able to reintroduce these events in the coming months. However in the meantime, we are offering ‘virtual coffee morning and training events’ via zoom as a way of keeping the network of Village Hall and Community Building Trustees in touch and informed.
