Another successful Staffordshire village hall network meeting
Mon 7 Oct 2019
Village hall representatives from around Staffordshire came to Colton Village Hall last Thursday (3rd October) to network with each other - sharing experiences and ideas over coffee and cake - and also to find out more about village hall insurance issues. Gavin Mitchell of Allied Westminster gave a very informative presentation including the pitfalls on under-insuring with a couple of case studies. There were also presentations on the local oil buyer scheme run by Shropshire Rural Communities Charity ( see https://www.shropshire-rcc.org.uk/services/individuals/oil-buying-scheme/ ) and ACRE's Village Halls Week 20th to 26th January 2020 (see http://acre.org.uk/our-work/village-halls-week )
Support Staffordshire will be organising the next Village Halls Network meeting in January 2020. You can make sure you get an invite by becoming a member or parish council associate of Support Staffordshire (free to village halls and £25 for parish councils).
