Community Buildings Update

Our monthly Action News Update email contains important news and information for anyone involved in running a community building, as well as headline stories and news of what’s going on both locally and nationally. We also send out shorter email bulletins every fortnight purely focused on community buildings.

If you would like to receive these free updates, please just email us. We will continue to send Action News Update to anyone that would like to receive it but the Community Buildings Updates will only be available to Action Hampshire member organisations. Remember, applying for membership is free and simple.
