Hallmark - A Quality Standards Scheme for Village Halls

In 2007, ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) developed a quality standard scheme for the management of community buildings/village halls, which is called the Hallmark Scheme. ACRE invited TVRCC to operate this scheme in the Tees Valley.

The scheme has three stages;

TVRCC see the scheme to be beneficial to halls, in two main ways:

Participation in the Hallmark Scheme is entirely voluntary.

The Hallmark Scheme is an accredited scheme and participating halls will reach a level of achievement through self assessment and to achieve accreditation will be assessed by two “visitors” who are fully trained volunteers from other halls in the Tees Valley.

If you/your hall wish to participate in Hallmark (or discuss), please email or call, on 01642 213852.

On your email could you please give your name, position on the management committee (i.e.Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer or Trustee), your postal address and a contact telephone number.

A checklist to see if your village hall is ready to go for Hallmark level 1 and an entry form for level one can be found below
