What’s New at WNCBC
#VillageHalls Week: 22nd – 28th January 2019
January 22nd to 28th 2019, will see the second, national #VillageHallsWeek taking place, helping to raise the profile of some 11,000 vitally important halls/community buildings right across the country. The first celebration week was trending all over social media last year and many halls in Northumberland got involved, by hosting special events and activities which included Burns suppers, bake sales, energy events, coffee mornings and even an employment session. Why not use the opportunity this January to host your own Village Hall event or activity? Whatever you choose to do to celebrate #VillageHallsWeek 2019, let CAN know, as they would be delighted to help you to spread the word.
West Northumberland Community Buildings Consortium (WNCBC) is registered with the Charity Commission – registration number 1168006. You can view our information on the Charity Commission website here.
WNCBC is an organisation which was set up to represent all village halls and community buildings of any type within the West Northumberland area. It is run by a management committee which is made up of volunteers from within its own members halls, and is further supported by Community Action Northumberland (CAN), who provide us with an administrative and advisory function.
A full list of the benefits of membership can be found on the following pages.
