Visiting other Village Halls

There are some wonderful village halls in the district and several members felt it would be a great idea to visit some to get support, ideas and inspiration. E.g. Barham, Wootton, Ashford Rd in Canterbury, Chartham…

Keys to the VH

A key safe will be secured to the outside of the VH – to make it easier for users to access the key. This has been done
