Mid Cornwall Community Halls Evening

Come along to Treverbyn Community Hall 

Wednesday 22nd July 6.30pm – 8.30pm


A chance to meet with other people managing village halls, community centres and other community buildings in the mid-Cornwall area.


6.30pm Introduction and brief discussions
Sharing information and experiences on sources of funding, recruiting Trustees and other volunteers, ways to get more people using your hall, and any other issues put forward in advance.


7.00pm Success – Goal – Challenge!
The idea is for you to very quickly learn about what people are doing in other halls and to see where there are issues in common.  These can then be followed up during the informal networking session.  You have 5-6 minutes to discuss each other’s successes, goals and challenges before moving on to your next table.

Success- What is your committee’s most recent success?  This could be anything from resolving a constitutional issue, organising a good fundraising event, obtaining funding for new toilets etc.

Goal- What is your next goal?  Perhaps you want to grow your committee with the right type of skills, or understand using the hall from your hirers’ perspective and intend on improving their experience, does your committee want to transfer to a new legal structure, or possibly you want to promote your hall on Facebook etc.

Challenge- what is your biggest challenge?  It could be that you are struggling to recruit enough volunteers, or your hall has a damp issue that is causing bigger problems, did you want to purchase a piece of equipment but the cost on your own is prohibitive, or perhaps your hall is suffering from vandalism?


7.30pm Refreshments and informal networking
Follow up on the previous introductions, learn how other halls tackle the same issues as you, delve into the detail of anything else mentioned during the evening and generally have a good chin wag.
