New information to help village halls reopen

ACRE has prepared updated information to help volunteer management committees negotiate the latest easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures.

It has been a year since England’s 10,000+ village halls were forced to shut their doors for the first time. The closure of these buildings left many rural communities without a place to gather and put a stop to activities and events which help sustain village life.

Issue 9 of the ‘Re-opening Village and Community Halls’ Information Sheet’ sets explains what village halls can and cannot do over the next few months as Covid-19 restrictions are eased, including requirements for social distancing.

You can read the full story from ACRE on their website.
