Check in: Village Hotels rejoin CMPP!

We are delighted to announce that under the leadership of Danielle Enderson, Regional Sales Director, Village Hotels have rejoined CMPP as a Member for 2023-24.

For a decade, The Village Hotel Farnborough has been the place of choice for so many CMPP occasions: iconic fund raising social events (no one who was there will quickly forget the extraordinary World Cup themed fundraising evening in 2014, dancing to the sounds of local legends 'The Vice Squad'!); inspirational networking events involving dozens of local business and community leaders, determined to work together to make a difference; a venue for so many formal meetings - task groups, steering groups, Trust Boards - and countless informal catch-ups over a coffee in the lounge...

It's great news, therefore, that after a period of revaluation, the Village Hotels group - in particular the Group's Hotels in Farnborough, Bracknell and Basingstoke - are back as fully engaged CMPP Members. And what partners they will be! Dani spoke enthusiastically about what aspirations she has for this first year: 'We are delighted to be re-engaging our partnership with CMPP. The Village brand values start with being at the heart of the community - a local place to eat, meet and work out, as well as a hotel for our overnight guests.

We are bursting with initiatives and ideas about how, with the support of CMPP, through skill sharing, volunteering days, provision of meeting and events spaces and so much more, we can be this heart.

Huge thanks to Simon, Paul and the CMPP team for their fantastic vision and enabling us to reignite our partnership.'

Simon Jarvis, CMPP CEO, was delighted at this decision. 'I've said to Dani and Rob Lees (General Manager at The Village in Farnborough) that this is a special place for CMPP and its predecessor organisation, The Community Matters Partnership.

In so many ways, The Village has been at the centre of what we've been doing or planning. It's fitting then that as part of the three year agreement between us, Dani has offered to host the CMPP staff once we leave the Tomlinscote office later this year, generously making 'VWorks' available to us as our base.

Dani and her team are kindred spirits, sharing our vision and values. They have some great ideas for community engagement and CMPP are sure to play a key part in supporting achievement of those plans. Village HoteIs have already signed up to be a Headline Sponsor of this year's Twilight Runway Challenge on 16 September. I'm excited also to announce that we will be using The Village as a venue for future 'Community Minds' events - thought leadership for our stakeholders - planning for which is now underway.

A great addition to the Membership: I look forward to working closely with Dani and her colleagues to deliver some brilliant joint projects to help transform our community.'
