Village Halls Week

ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England)  is co-ordinating a celebration of village halls throughout England during the week beginning Monday 22 January. So if your hall would like to think about running an activity or event in that week, please let Louise Currie at CAN know. It could be a tea-party for your community, a special lunch club, or a special training event – whatever you like – be as creative as you want! . Maybe your local MP might like to attend your event? Contact  Louise on 01670 517178 or by e-mail at  For more information: village halls week

Fans of Ian McMillan will be delighted to learn that he has penned a special poem celebrating village halls.
