On Monday 20 January Village Halls Week launched in style at The House of Commons.
The Launch event signalled the start of Village Halls Week, sponsored by utility Aid and Allied Westminster and supported by Defra and the NRTF, we were delighted to be able to take representatives of halls and the ACRE Network along. The Event gained much media attention and was successful in raising the profile of the event with MPs and Lords alike.
2020 saw the 3rd year for ACRE’s national campaign Village Halls Week. Over 700 halls registered to celebrate. The support for village halls, their services, volunteers and their importance to their communities was overwhelming. We were delighted to see halls receive visits from their MPs and be featured in local and national news papers as well as be featured on 18 BBC stations.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the week, there was an huge increase of interest which gained substantial and positive attention for village halls all over the country.
