HVMH receives no income other than that raised by the current Management Committee through lettings and fund raising events.
Some grants from public bodies have been received in the past for defined projects such as planting or fencing.
HVMH has been recently successful in receiving funds from The Big Lottery Fund to go towards hall improvements, marketing the hall to help raise awareness and increase footfall and to run educational programmes.
HVMH has recently been awarded grant funding from WREN, who administer awards for the Landfill Communities fund, which is for the development of the grounds of HVMH for projects such as new accessible footpaths & gates.
Grants are currently unavailable for the ongoing maintenance of the hall so HVMH currently relies on local residents and volunteer groups to help with this.
The Earth Skills Project (TESP) are a local Community Interest Company who provide a range of activities in the outdoors and encourage people to live in such a way that will reduce the impact on the natural environment.
TESP design and create inspiring outdoor spaces and play structures to fit harmoniously into their environment using natural materials and traditional skills.
They carry out vital conservation work and encourage the involvement from local communities and volunteers to help preserve woodlands and the natural environment.
HVMH are currently working with TESP who is project managing the current woodland regeneration project within the grounds of the hall after we have recently been awarded WREN funding.
