Volunteers, Community Groups and Support Organisations are invited by MCC to a unique community event taking place on Thursday, 5 July from 6.30pm – 8.30pm in Abergavenny’s Market Hall. The event is built on asset based community development principles and focussed on individual volunteers and community groups in the north of the County. This way of working is a key responsibility of MCC’s Community and Partnership Development team. The purpose of the event is: –
- To provide a local, genuine thank you from political leadership for the considerable volunteer-based activity in the area.
- To present an opportunity for volunteers and community groups to engage with others, increase networks and for us to work together to strengthen local activity.
- To raise awareness of the excellent support on offer to community groups including advice, guidance, funding and training opportunities.
- To showcase the Market Hall as a community venue.
Local and national funders such as Rural Development Programme, Big Lottery People and Places, Abergavenny Rotary and Brecon Beacons National Park will be at the event, with young musicians performing to provide a little extra atmosphere. Volunteers and any community groups can book a free place at the event by following this link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/be-community-networking-event-abergavenny-tickets-46928441231.
