Training and Events

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Events will NOT be taking place until further notice.

In coming to this conclusion, we have taken into account current Government advice on the need to delay the spread of the COVID-19 virus to assist the UK’s health and care systems in coping. We wish to protect our own staff, trustees and volunteers from risk (for example, we have asked our staff to work from home, to use tele/video-conferencing to ‘meet’ people and have placed temporarily halt on our volunteering activities). We also realise that attendees and speakers may have their own concerns about infection and may prefer to withdraw from attending anyway.

I hope you will understand our decision, which we believe reflects our duty of care to all those involved. Cambridgeshire ACRE will continue to offer advice and support to rural communities throughout this period by phone, email, video-conference, social media and website briefings. Please do get in touch if your have any issues or concerns we might be able to assist with.


During the year we hold several events to support the network of village halls and community buildings in the county.  These events provide trustees with an opportunity to come together to share their knowledge, experiences and best practice.  To down load our 2020 programme of event please click the link below:

Our programme provides an opportunity for trustees to hear from interesting speakers on a variety of subjects all relating to village hall charities.

See below an example of feedback we have received from members attending these events:

Thank you for a very enjoyable and informative morning.  There was plenty of food for thought, and these events refresh our resolve to do the best we can for our Village Hall.” Trustee from Yelling Village Hall
