This event is open to Village Hall/Community Building trustees only with a maximum of 2 representatives per hall. To register for this free event follow this link.
At our last Consortium meeting it was decided to gather together a list of useful suppliers/traders which members had successfully used in the past. These could include: solicitors, draftspersons, energy auditors, building surveyors, structural engineers, builders, stonemasons, joiners, plasterers, floor layers & suppliers, floor sanders, painters & decorators, electricians, plumbers, kitchen fitters, window fitters etc. Clearly NNVHC would not be endorsing or recommending them – just including them as suppliers which have satisfied certain village hall clients in the past. We think that this could save a huge amount of time and are keen for all members to contribute to this list. The form attached here can be downloaded and has room for two suppliers but feel free to add as many as you like. Details or where to return it are included.
