News from ACRE: Village Halls 2020 a HUGE success

On Monday 20 January Village Halls Week launched in style at The House of Commons.

The Launch event signalled the start of Village Halls Week, sponsored by Utility Aid and Allied Westminster and supported by Defra and the NRTF, we were delighted to be able to take representatives of halls and the ACRE Network along. The Event gained much media attention and was successful in raising the profile of Village Halls Week with MPs and Lords alike.

The week was featured across 18 BBC channels, 10 Broadcasters tweeted from personal accounts as well, proudly showing their badges. 18 MPs supported the week by visiting events, halls and tweeting and 22 articles appeared in local and national press including The Times, The Telegraph, Country Life Magazine, and the Daily Mail. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work and support ensuring the success of the week. The increase in media attention gained substantial and positive attention for village halls all over the country. There was also a huge increase in engagement from halls themselves, having a positive impact locally, strengthening relationships between ACRE members and hall trustees.
