Village Halls Week 2019 is nearly here


Village Halls Week 2019 is coming soon, building on the successful launch in January 2018. From Tuesday 22 to Monday 28 January we’ll be joining with the ACRE Network of rural development charities to celebrate the impact of village halls and similar community venues.

In particular, we want to show how village halls help to tackle social isolation, giving people a local venue for activities from lunch clubs and support groups to exercise classes and film shows.

How you can get involved

Tell us what’s happening at your venue! We’d love to use your hall in our publicity around Village Halls Week so please let us know what’s going on from 22 to 28 Jan. Events open to the public in general are perfect, but we’d appreciate hearing about anything that’s aimed at reducing people’s feelings of isolation and loneliness. Call 01962 857358 or email us.

On the ACRE website there are more details, along with a poster template that you can either edit yourselves (if you have the software and skills!) or ask ACRE staff to edit for you – please email Felicity Humphrey for this.

You are also welcome to download the Village Halls Week image above for inclusion in your own publicity materials, on your website etc. Either save the image onto your computer / device, or copy it directly into your poster or leaflet.
