We have teamed up with the fantastic guys from Teesside LGV Training to be able to offer all our volunteer drivers both MiDAS Mini Bus and Passenger Assist Training. This ensures all our drivers meet a very high standard. We have such a fantastic team of experienced drivers who bring a wealth of knowledge to our training sessions, that each session is fun and informative. Thanks to John from Teesside LGV who keeps us all on track.
We are running our 2nd Tees Valley Village Halls & Community Venue Conference at Middleton St George Community Centre, Darlington on 24th January 2019 9:15am-2:30pm to celebrate #VillageHallsWeek. We are proud to support the volunteers running community buildings in the Tees Valley. Without their dedication, skill and expertise these facilities would close down and be lost forever.
We aim to celebrate the diversity of these community buildings, share stories and experiences from those involved ‘on the ground’ and champion the volunteers at the heart of these local enterprises. We are providing a range of speakers, networking opportunities along with a hot buffet. Book your place to avoid disappointment.
TVRA is delighted to report that we have been successful in receiving a grant from Awards for All, The National Lottery Fund to support our work with village halls and community buildings in the rural areas of the Tees Valley.
Throughout 2019 TVRA will be working closely with the management committees of village halls and community buildings across the rural areas of the Tees Valley to develop a village hall resource register and information file. This will be launched at our Village Hall Conference in January 2020 to coincide with #villagehallsweek. We believe that this will bring many more people together, strengthening relationships across our rural communities, developing skills and a knowledge base within our rural areas which will enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
