Villagers have high hopes for the new manager of a top venue.
Alex Hodgkinson has taken the position at Ashover Parish Hall Events Centre, in Milken Lane.
The 30–year–old mum–of–two said: “It really is a brilliant venue, the facilities are superb and the countryside location is beautiful.
“We are set up to cater for all different kinds of events and I want to make sure that everybody in the County and beyond knows we are here. I want to put Ashover Parish Hall Events Centre firmly on the map.”
Alex has already outlined a new branding and marketing strategy, which she hopes will improve the centre in both the short and long term.
She feels that the centre is the perfect place for events such as weddings, commenting: “I have seen some absolutely beautiful weddings here over the summer but I love the fact the centre is so versatile and can cater for almost any event.”
