12th Jan 2022

We are delighted to be once again supporting Village Halls Week - a national campaign shining a spotlight on the contribution England's 10,000 + community buildings make to rural communities. It is an opportunity for management committees to celebrate their work and get inspiration from others. 

The campaign is led by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) and this year the fifth campaign will challenge halls to do something different and innovate for the future. 

Community buildings do much to improve life for local residents, often providing the only local space where people gather, combating loneliness and delivering a wide range of activities and services.

In these precarious times, community buildings can play a leading role in shaping a better future. During the week, we will be encouraging halls to pledge to do something different - whether that be extending their offer to the community, reducing their impact on the environment or becoming more financially sustainable. 

What are DCA doing?

During the week we will be holding an Online Share and Learn Network meeting for representatives of community buildings to celebrate how community buildings and village halls make a difference to people in their communities. We will also be discussing lessons learned following Christmas activities as well as plans for 2022. Full details and book your place here

We will also be launching a special podcast talking to members of our support team and representatives from community buildings across the county. Look out for this being launched on our social media pages from Monday 24th January.
