We all know that village halls are often the very centre of local communities across Cambridgeshire.
There are around 250 village halls and other community buildings across the County, playing a key role in reducing social isolation within rural communities.
90% of Cambridgeshire Village halls are run by dedicated volunteers, giving up countless hours to keeping the community facility open for all to use.
To celebrate this, the ACRE Network is running the first ever National Village Halls Week during the week of the 22nd January 2018.
Ways in which you can help:
Say a massive “Thank You” to those who run village halls by supporting the national campaign on social media over the next few weeks.
