Hallmark success celebrated with Fowlmere Village Hall trustees
Congratulations to the trustees of Fowlmere Village Hall management committee on achieving Hallmark 1 accreditation. Hallmark is a nationally recognised quality standard scheme for village halls and community facilities.
Cambridgeshire ACRE runs the scheme throughout the County and are pleased to announce the trustees at Fowlmere Village Hall have achieved Hallmark 1 accreditation. The visitors who carried out the accreditation inspection were impressed with the management committee who are very proactive at improving the facilities at the hall.
Fowlmere village hall is clearly a well-used community asset, there are regular weekday groups and classes to attend along with regular weekend farmers markets. The hall also hosts external activities such as Caravan Club events several times a year, and of course the hall is also available for hire for private functions such as celebration parties, quizzes and wedding receptions.
The benefits of the Hallmark scheme for village halls include: formal recognition that the community facility has embedded good practice and procedures, giving residents and hirers confidence that their valuable community venue is being well managed and run by the trustees. There are three levels to the Hallmark scheme and it is hoped the trustees of Fowlmere Village Hall will soon go on to achieve the next two levels.
Kirsten Bennett, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire ACRE said: “We would like to congratulate the trustees and volunteers at Fowlmere Village Hall on their recent success with Hallmark 1. This accreditation is confirmation of the hard work and dedication of the management committee and supporters of the village hall. I wish them every success as they progress through the next two levels of the scheme.”
Dorothy Woods, Chairman of the management committee, said: “I am of course very proud and delighted that hard work has earned us this highly valued accreditation for our Village Hall, which is the focus for so many village and other activities. Cambridgeshire ACRE’s support and advice
