Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE), the national charity which champions and supports community-led projects and assets in the countryside, has published comprehensive information that will help village and community halls reopen once government coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

ACRE’s information sheet looks at how village halls can prepare risk assessments, ensure social distancing once open and introduce effective cleaning regimes. There are some practical resources too including checklists, notices for display in halls and sample terms of hire.
