Village Halls Network

The Village and Community Halls Network, formerly the National Village Halls Forum, provides an opportunity for trustees of village halls to air their views and assist ACRE in the development of policies in support of village halls and similar rural community buildings.

Any individual, organisation or business with an appreciation of the role of village and community halls in the provision of facilities for the delivery of services across rural England is welcome to sign up.  This Network will not provide advice and support for your village hall; please contact your local ACRE Network member.

You will receive regular updates from ACRE to enable you to:

  • Proactively engage with ACRE and provide information that can support policy development.
  • Share good practice.
  • Gain an early insight and knowledge on how new/changing legislation might impact on halls generally.
  • Contribute to the development of appropriate legislation and regulation.

If you would like to join the Village Halls Network, please email Deborah Clarke stating the name of your hall and the email address you would like us to use for future communication
