“I have dealt with avow in my capacity as committee member of Holt Local history society a number of years ago, when Heather Hicks visited me to go through funding applications we were considering making. I have also attended a health and hygiene course in my capacity as committee member of Kenyon Hall in Holt and now have approached you re: the Holt Village website. You are basically my first point of call.”

Bev Mcconville, Holt Village Website

“Thank you so much, it all seems so easy now someone has explained it to me!”

Nicky Roberts

“The training has given me the confidence in what I’m doing is correct and it’s helped me improve in certain areas”

Jenifer Williams

“I have never given volunteering a thought. I often felt it was not worth it! But now, I feel so valued and I’m making new friends and learning new things for employment.”

“As a result of your help our community now has 70 acres of recreational land that might otherwise have been sold for other purposes.”
