Re-opening Village Halls – 29 March 2021

29 March 2021

ACRE has published a new version of the Information Sheet – Opening your hall after lockdown (v9). This update includes new information about the Roadmap out of Lockdown. Perhaps most useful is the Appendix D – Activities Table 26.3.21 – this shows a whole range of activities held in village & community halls, the step at which this activity can take place and any limits on the activity.

We will keep this blog post up to date and change the date in the title, so hall management committees can easily see if the guidance has been amended and can ensure that they are working from the current version.

There are Microsoft Word versions of the appendices (including the two sample risk assessments) so that management committees can download and tailor documents to local circumstances.
