Hallmark Levels 1 – 3 are quality standard marks for Village Halls & Community Buildings
They demonstrate to your Community and stakeholders (e.g. Insurance Companies, banks & funders) that your building meets the basic standards (L1) through to exceptional standards (L3) of quality provision.
They also act as an internal audit to reassure Trustees/Management Committees that they are meeting legal obligations and serving the community as directed by their constitution.
Hallmark training has been scheduled for the following dates, please click on the link to book your place:
26th March, 10am – 12pm at Ashhampstead Village Hall, Hallmark 1 (West Berkshire Halls): https://ccberks.wufoo.com/forms/hallmark-1-training-ashampstead/

After you have achieved HALLMARK 1, you can attend HALLMARK 2 training. After attending this course and a short site visit you could attain a HALLMARK 2 certificate.
In the Autumn of 2020 we plan to work with L2 Halls to help them achieve HALLMARK 3 (the highest standard)
What does training cover? Training covers a great deal, but in essence covers the following;
Hallmark 1 focuses on the management and administration of the charity.
Hallmark 2 focuses on health, safety, security and licences.
Hallmark 3 requires the hall to be working with the community and its users, including stakeholders; marketing the hall and building its profile in the centre of the community.
The aim of Hallmark is to:
• Establish good practice
• Encourage improvement in established customs and procedures
• Gain recognition for obtaining good standards in management of the hall
