One of our promises is to run a two year programme of workshops for parish and town councils and community groups on a range of topics that bring together successful examples and share best practice to enable others to implement their own solutions to local needs.
In October we held a workshop on Running a successful village hall and in November we ran a workshop on Planning and running a successful consultation. Details of the next workshops coming up are listed below. Click on the links for more details about each workshop and how to book a place. Booking is essential as we will only run a workshop if there are sufficient people attending.
