Village Halls Week 2023 - FREE Networking Event

Northamptonshire’s village halls to be recognised for providing warm, welcoming, and inclusive spaces

Village Halls Week 2023 will celebrate the many ways these volunteer-run rural community buildings support local residents, groups and businesses, particularly during difficult times.

As the country endures a cost-of-living crisis, rural communities have come to rely on the humble village hall as a place to keep warm, access basic services and socialise without the expense of travelling elsewhere.

Halls across Northamptonshire will be taking part in the national campaign week, showcasing what they are doing for their community, and the opportunities they provide to people locally that would not otherwise exist.

Activities beginning Monday 23 January will include open days at local halls and an engaging social media campaign that will include touching stories from users of community buildings.

As part of the week, Northamptonshire ACRE is holding a FREE online networking event for community buildings.  The event will take place on Wednesday 25th January at noon and will include a demonstration by Hallmaster of their Online Booking and Invoice Management System.  If you would like to attend, please contact: [email protected].

If your hall is helping to support the week by organising an event, do visit ACRE's website where you can download posters and other resources. You can also enter details of your event on their interactive map:
