On the 6th October we held our Community Buildings Annual Training, AGM and Community Infrasture Levy Workshop at Edgar Community Hall, Somerton.
The Community Buildings annual training event was a great success, with over 60 village hall committee members attending with guest speakers from HMRC presenter Lisa Howe – presenting the expectations of community facilities and their responsibilities. The second half of the morning has two presenters covering funding, Tim Temple with updates from The Big Lottery Fund and CCS’s very own Jane Birch discussing crowdfunding.
Afternoon Session featured our AGM and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) workshop.
This year our Chair Tess Gill stood down but remains a Trustee and Jim Claydon has taken the role. This was followed by our CIL workshop, with presentations and information from local experts including Somerset Association of Local Councils (SALC).
