NEWTON Village Hall management committee can proudly claim to be the first village hall in Fenland to achieve the Hallmark accreditation.
Hallmark is a nationally-recognised quality standard that allows village hall management committees to show how well they are managing their hall.
Newton demonstrated that they complied with charity law at Hallmark Level 1 which focus on committee governance, hall maintenance and good financial management. The assessment was carried out at Newton by specially-trained ‘visitors’ from other village halls in Cambridgeshire.
The hall, which has had a major refurbishment over the past two years, is available for hire at reasonable rates.
The management committee are actively seeking to encourage new groups and activities looking for a venue.
Hallmark is recognised by the Charity Commission as a quality standard that all community buildings and village halls should aim to achieve.
Insurance companies also recognise Hallmark status and some offer a discount on premiums or premises where Hallmark accreditation has been achieved.
