Holme Valley Education, Arts and Rural Trust Adult Education Centre Survey 2014 You have been sent this questionnaire by ‘Holme Valley Education, Arts and Rural Trust’ (HEART). HEART is a not-for-profit organisation of local people who want to ensure a viable future for Holmfirth Adult Education Centre. Our intention is to keep the centre as :  a resource for community learning in the Holme Valley  a base for support services and for local enterprise in particular arts, craft and heritage  meeting spaces and other facilities required by local people and businesses. In order for HEART to provide support for community ventures, it is important that the building can attract a regular income so that it can be self-funding. This means finding people and businesses who will want to use the building, commercially, on a regular basis, as well as it hosting ad hoc events. We therefore need your help and views in order to see if developing the building would be advantageous to the community as a whole.
