Fradswell Village Hall

 

Our vision:

'A vibrant community hub at the heart of Fradswell, providing local opportunities to meet, socialise, learn, share & shop,

A model for rural community engagement'

 

 

Our values:

Localness

We want to provide opportunities, facilities and services within the community to reduce isolation and the need to travel.

 

Sustainability

Our community has been here for generations. In all we do we strive to ensure it is here for generations to come.

 

Inclusiveness

We want to engage every part of our community, recognising the threat of rural isolation, especially being aware of the need to involve the young and the elderly.

 

Enabling

We aim to provide opportunities that truly enable people, through teaching new skills and encouraging enterprise

 

Tradition

Whatever we seek to do in the future we should always be proud of and embrace our tradition
