Community First supports over 160 village halls and community buildings across Wiltshire and Swindon, through the Wiltshire Village Halls Association (WVHA) network.
Wiltshire Village Halls Association (WVHA)
As an ACRE Network member, Community First is passionate about supporting local village halls and community buildings across Wiltshire and Swindon, through the Wiltshire Village Halls Association (WVHA) service. We believe that village halls (and the volunteers who manage them) offer a valuable service to local communities by offering affordable, accessible and inviting places for communities to come together.
WVHA is an advisory and support service from Community First, dedicated to championing local village halls and community buildings. We offer a variety of services including practical support and advice, training, regular updates for members, access to digital resources and an online directory website with individual hall profiles, to help members advertise their hall or building.
