A New Look For an Old Friend

Based in Allum Lane, Elstree, for over 20 years Elstree, Borehamwood and District Community Association (EBDCA) has hosted a wide range of community events,
from exercise classes to Wedding Receptions.

At its recent AGM, Chairman Jim McKean announced that from 29th November
EBDCA would trade under the new name of "Allum Manor – House & Hall".

After a comprehensive review of marketing activities the Board of Trustees
authorised a complete re-brand and a more active marketing programme
to increase awareness of the Hall and the House, and so increase the service
they deliver to the community.

Mr. McKean commented “We wanted to highlight the unique features of
Allum Manor and decided to use the services of local professional designers,
printers, sign manufacturers and other suppliers.”

Guests at the AGM were given copies of a new brochure and shown new outdoor signage as well as an indoor banner. They were invited to learn more about Allum Manor by visiting its new website and Facebook page.

“We want to spread the message that Allum Manor is here to be enjoyed by all our community.” said Mr. McKean. “With the benefit of this new marketing material
we have started a focused advertising campaign starting with an advertisement in January’s Wedding Supplement of “Hertfordshire Life Magazine”.

“We’ll be tracking the results achieved and will continue to invest selectively in marketing and refurbishment based on what our users tell us, so please do let us
know what you think of our new look Allum Manor – House & Hall.”

Aldenham Transport Spectacular

Allum Manor Hall recently hosted for the first time the  “Aldenham Transport Spectacular”, an annual fair for transport fans in general and bus fans in particular.  Over 20 stallholders exhibited their books, photos, badges, timetables……. something for everybody!  During the
6 hours of the fair over 400 paying visitors filed into Allum Manor Hall.  Most had come via the nearby railway station.

Organiser Guy Bowden was delighted that the fair attracted so many fans. “We organised a transport fair here, all the staff were brilliant in helping us. Some of the trustees [of Allum Manor] attended the event and were very happy and pleased with what we have done. Everyone liked the lighting in the hall and how spacious it was.”
