Enterprising Halls

What is ‘Enterprising Halls?

The Enterprise Halls programme will help trustees and committee members of Village Halls and other community buildings to be more effective in running and developing their hall.


Participants on Enterprising Halls will complete the programme feeling more confident and better equipped to run their hall as an 'enterprise', with ideas and advice on developing income, improving governance, developing capital projects and more.
