Go Green Village Halls Week 2024 and funding update. 

We invite you to join us to discuss ways to help make your village hall or community building more environmentally friendly. We will also be looking at the most current funding offers and answering any funding specific questions.

Village Halls Week 2024 will take place from Monday 18 – Sunday 24 March. The first part of this network meeting will focus on the 2024 campaign, which will place particular emphasis on how hall management committees can make their building more energy efficient. To support this, we will chat through some ideas on how to celebrate Village Halls Week as well as ways to inspire your communities to work towards net zero.

We will follow this discussion with a detailed update from our funding expert Nicky on the most current funding offers and answering any funding specific questions.
