ACRE guidance available for community buildings

Things have moved so fast in the last couple of weeks in response to protecting our communities against the Coronavirus pandemic. All village halls and community buildings will now be closed to the public, the exception to this might be if you have a pre-school or nursery providing a service for the children of key workers.

Cambridgeshire ACRE is operating as usual to help and assist trustees and volunteers. While all the facilities might be closed at the moment, in the coming weeks we will need to be thinking ahead as we try and return to normal life and what that might look like for our Village Halls and Community Buildings.

ACRE has published a new page on their website providing an update on their work nationally, this can be viewed via the link: https://acre.org.uk/rural-issues/coronavirus-rural-halls-and-small-charities

There is also two useful briefing notes available to download, please see the link below:
