It’s ‘hearty and hidden’ and has something for everyone.

Great news the Volunteering Network has a wonderful range of rooms for groups, organisations or individuals to rent, in small, medium or large budget size pieces and prices.

From cosy and comfortable interview rooms (fit for 2-4 people) to our medium sized training and IT suites (good for groups of 5-14 people) and finally to our hearty and hidden ‘Secret meeting room’ (stout enough for up to 50 people), we have something to meet your venue needs.

We can also offer repeat booking discounts and free tea and coffee.

So if you are looking that venue that is central to Somerset with good parking, look no further and get in contact to make that booking.

A Mahoosive ‘Thank you’.

Dear all,

As the dust settles after a fabulous festival over the weekend, on behalf of Luke and the festival organizers I wanted to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to all you fantastic volunteer stewards who took part over the weekend. Running such an event would simply not be feasible without such volunteer support.  We therefore really appreciate you giving your up your time to help out and, in so doing, helping make HFF9 the extremely successful event that it was.

It was a great pleasure working with all of you and getting to know you a bit. In particular, I much appreciated your very helpful approach, constantly smiling faces and, above all, your good humour. I know how hard you all worked, and some until quite late into the wee hours, but equally, I hope you had the chance to enjoy yourselves, see some of the many superb acts and soak up the great atmosphere that is the hallmark of HFF.

As ever, should you have any feedback from your experience of the event then we would love to hear it as we are always looking for ways to improve. And, of course, if you would like to help again next year, or indeed have friends who might also like to help, then please let us know. (Please also pass on this to your friends and colleagues who were there over the weekend but for whom I haven’t got e-mail addresses).

Once again, very many thanks indeed – you did yourselves, and HFF9, proud.  Here’s to HFF10!

Yours,

Nolan
