Update on current advice/situation for village halls 8th March 2021

ACRE has issued new information to help village halls prepare for reopening. Our assessment is that contrary to the government’s announcement on 22 February, village halls will not be able to reopen after Easter, except for a small number of permitted activities. Most will have to wait until 17 May before they can be hired out for many functions including exercise classes, coffee mornings, performances and celebrations.

The update, should be read alongside previous advice and information issued by the charity which provided a detailed commentary on how village halls could previously reopen following the government’s Covid Secure rules
