What a week! Village Halls Week celebrated

The week of 22 to 26 January was national Village Halls Week. The whole week was an amazing celebration with lots of cake, tea and bunting; what could be better? We celebrated at two events where Hallmark Certificates were presented. Little Downham Village Hall received Hallmark 1 and Mandeville Hall received Hallmark 2 & 3, the first hall in the county to receive Hallmark 3.

Village Hall trustees also celebrated by congratulating and thanking volunteers for all their hard work. Horningsea Pavilion thanked their long-serving Booking Secretary and Coton Village Hall thanked their dedicated caretakers as two examples.

Sue Marchant from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire covered Village Halls Week in her daily afternoon radio show. Sue visited halls from around the county and did some lovely interviews with trustees and users of village halls. It was really wonderful to have Sue involved for the whole week.

There are so many photos we could share from this fabulous week and if you would like to see more, please visit our Community Buildings Service blog.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to take part in this week-long event and we really hope that next year Village Halls Week will be even bigger and better.
