Pembrokeshire Community Buildings Network

The aim of the Network is to address common issues that affect community buildings in Pembrokeshire, from the biggest community centre to the smallest church or village hall.

The Network, co-organised by PAVS and PLANED, meets on an annual basis to listen to speakers from different agencies covering a variety of topics, offering practical tips and advice on issues such as funding and managing your hall.

Groups who attend the events also benefit from opportunities to network with other halls across the county. If you represent a community venue and are not a member of this group then please get in touch and we can make sure that you receive an invitation to the next event.

Our next event:

Bloomfield Community Centre, Narberth

22nd May 2019

Pembrokeshire Community Buildings Forum 2016

Fforwm Adeiladau Cymunedol 2016


The previous Community Buildings Forum took place on May 14th 2015, at Uzmaston Community Hall.

The evening was titled 'Doing Things Differently - making the most of your Hall'.

There were speakers from a number of halls who have developed community cafes to meet the needs of local people. Followed by a presentation from Resource Efficient Wales, on how this Welsh Government initiative can help community buildings save money on their energy builds.

The Arts Council Wales shared how easy it is for communtity buildings to access the 'Night Out' scheme to put on professional performances, followed by Pennar Community Hall sharing their experience of using the scheme.

The evening was rounded off with an update on the current funding situation and an opportunity to share funding successes or disappointments.

The evening was jam-packed with information and was well recieved by all community building workers, committee members and trustees who attended.

The next Halls Forum will take place in Spring 2016 - see you there.
