It is 'getting there' but it may well take many more months before it can reasonably be viewed as 'really good'. Your help with reaching that stage as quickly as possible would be much appreciated! If we appear to have missed out an 'obvious' group, please check the Names Index in case we have included it under a different name.

Notes
(1) The entries for Activities show what the organisations do that are of relevance to us, using the categories that we use on the Activities Index, and so may exclude their other activities & interests. Where it is not reasonably obvious which category an activity reported above is being shown on the Activities Index, that category is shown in brackets (for example: Library is shown as in both the 'Educational' and 'Entertainment' categories).
(2) For Venues with a green apple next to the name (which links to a page within the directory of Community Halls in Herefordshire Council's web site), the 'Venue hosting' entry shows what was identified on that page as a 'regular activity' of that venue on 07.11.18 subject to any later amendments which are shown in italics. If you disagree with what is shown in the Council's web site, please advise the person who has been identified in that site as the Contact for the Hall. If you are that Contact, we can advise you who to contact at the Council.
