What we do Village halls and community buildings Village Halls Week National Village Halls Week 22nd – 28th January 2018 To celebrate the first ever Village Halls Week, RAD is holding two Networking Events: Baslow Village Hall on Tuesday 23rd January (11.00am to 2.00pm) Dalbury Lees Village Hall on Wednesday 24th January (11.00am to 2.00pm) Come along and meet with your colleagues and friends to find out what is happening in the world of village halls. Whether you are a long-standing trustee, a new or potentially new committee member, a local authority or just curious about village halls, then please do come along and join us. You will be able to learn more about the service we offer, share good practice, identify common concerns, identify your training needs and tell us how RAD can better support you in the future. It is free to attend and will give you the opportunity to discuss issues affecting your hall with others facing similar experiences. You will also hear about the new GDPR Data Protection legislation, coming into force in May 2018 and how this will affect your organisation and the ‘Digital Village Hall’. To book your place/s, please email Helena Stubbs, or phone 01629 592970 or 01629 592973 It is essential you book your place for catering purposes; light refreshments provided.
