SOME OF OUR RECENT PROJECTS

Hursley village is a great place to live.

There is a fantastic community spirit and we are lucky enough to have two pubs, a school, a church and even a few shops. We have community events like the Summer Fete, the 10k Run and a yearly Panto as well as the Hursley Ball and various national celebrations that bring the whole village together. But what can we do to make the village better? Setting up of the Hursley Village Community Association (HVCA) was seen as a way of bringing people of all ages, interests and backgrounds together to work in a community-spirited, non-political way.

slack-icon-10The HVCA uses Slack as its primary real-time communication platform, replacing all previous communication platforms such as Yammer utilised by the HVSN in the past. When compiling a list of things people liked about our earlier communication methods, it was evident that Slack was all of that and more, including:

• Open for everyone
• Friendly user interface
• Easy asynchronous conversation
• iOS and Android apps
• Powerful customization abilities
• Excellent search

Here are some tips for getting the most out of Slack:

Notifications
The default notification settings for Slack send you everything. You’re going to want to switch to the recommended settings, which are for mentions and direct messages. You can also tweak these settings further, like setting specific “highlight” words and email preferences.

Native Desktop and Mobile Apps
Slack has a great, fully-featured web app, native Mac and Windows apps, and iOS and Android apps. Preferences, conversations, and what you’ve read are synced across devices. Push notifications on the go are kind of cool, too.

To join the HVCA membership on Slack, you will need to be a member of the HVCA. Sign up now  https://www.thehvca.co.uk/register/hvca-supporter/

Hot night in the village

Since 2015 the HVCA have organised a small village bonfire and fireworks at the village recreation ground in the village. To see the "Finnish Candles" in action is something well worth seeing, plenty of fireworks as well.

With the kind permission of Home Farm Estate, the Hursley 10k multi-terrain is currently organised by the Hursley Village Community Association (HVCA) with the help of other community groups and takes place each September and has been run since 2006.

WHO DO WE SUPPORT?
The event has been running for over TEN years now and in that time, we have had well over 2500 unique runners take part in our event, with many returning year after year. We are very proud of our achievements and the hard work of a lot of people connected with the event. Many local groups including John Keble School, All Saints Church, Shepherds Down School, Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance and other good causes have benefited from the event in the past.

BIG screen fun

HVCA Film Night

Big Screen Fun

On November 17th the HVCA organised the first Film Club night with a showing of Eddie the Eagle. The plan is to run more nights as another great way for the community to meet socially and watch a film. There was even a licenced bar and popcorn available.

 

Funds for projects

The HVCA community fund grants are designed to help support other community groups with one-off expenditure on small pieces of equipment, and other items that will help groups to do more, to reach more people, to provide better services or to try something different.

Hursley Park Cricket Club awarded £500

The HVCA fund is open to applications for one full month after the HVCA AGM, normally held in June each year, once the surplus from each year’s fundraising is finalised. Applications must be submitted within 30 days of notice being given to the fund being open.

The HVCA committee will then consider each application on merit and award funds accordingly by the end of the following month.
