Trustees achieving Hallmark accreditation

Congratulations to the trustees of Parson Drove Amenities Group on achieving Hallmark 1 accreditation.

Hallmark is a nationally recognised quality standard scheme for village halls and community facilities.

Cambridgeshire ACRE runs the scheme throughout the County and are pleased to announce the trustees at Parson Drove Village Hall have achieved Hallmark 1 accreditation. The visitors who carried out the accreditation inspection were impressed with the dedication of the trustees and the considerable amount of work they have completed over recent years to ensure their two facilities continue to be well used and loved by their local community.  The trustees have a clear vision for the future to continue to improve their facilities.

The benefits of the Hallmark scheme for village halls includes formal recognition that the community facility has embedded good practice and procedures, giving residents and hirers confidence that their valuable community venue is being well managed and run by the trustees. There are three levels to the Hallmark scheme and it is hoped the trustees of Parson Drove Village Hall will soon go on to achieve the next two levels.

Kirsten Bennett, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire ACRE said: “I would like to congratulate the trustees and volunteers at Parson Drove Village Hall on their recent success with Hallmark 1. This accreditation is confirmation of the hard work and dedication of the management committee and supporters of the village hall. I wish them every success as they progress through the next two levels of the scheme.”

Alan Killingworth, Chair of the trustees, said: “I wish to thank all committee members for their support and confidence over the last 10 years.  It has been the continuity of commitment that has contributed towards the success of achieving this award. We look forward to applying for the next 2 stages of the Hallmark accreditation process.”
