Village Halls Week 2018

We were very pleased to be part of the first ACRE Network Village Halls week that took place from Monday 22 January to Sunday 28th January 2018. The aim of the week was to celebrate the network of 10,000 community buildings in rural England, which provide vital access to local services. Frances Harris, our excellent Community Facilities Advisor, ran a coffee morning, which was attended by over 30 Village Hall committee members. Frances provided an informative and useful session on Community Infrastructure Organisations to the attendees as well as making all the delicious cakes and biscuits to go with the coffee! It was a very good event and a great way to celebrate our Village Hall volunteers.

Our coffee morning was just one of many events that took place around the country to champion the invaluable work done by the dedicated volunteers who run our rural community buildings. You can see someof the other events that took place by following #VillageHallsWeek on social media:
