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.
