BARN is 25!

2022 marks the 25th anniversary of Bromsgrove and Redditch Network.

Back in 1997 Bromsgrove and Redditch Network was formed by a small group of people passionate about volunteering and wanting to support other charities and community groups. Since then we’ve worked to support local communities and VCS organisations, working closely with local Councils and other organisations.

We’ll be doing a range of things over the next year to celebrate 25 years. These include:

  • Interviewing people that have known us through the years and make an online archive
  • Revisiting some of the projects and charities we’ve helped support
  • Planning a 25th Anniversary programme of activities focussed around the VCS – a Funding Fair, free training, workshops etc

Do you remember us in the early days? Or even helped us form? Is there training or workshops you’d like to see included?

Please give us a ring or email office@barn.org.uk and let us know.
