Please refer to the "New information to help village halls reopen" section at the ACRE website https://acre.org.uk Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) has been working as far as possible with relevant Government departments so that hall managers have confidence they are working to “joined up” guidance. It aims to provide practical information to assist hall managers to comply with Government guidance and the Health Protection Regulations. Where temporary local lockdowns are in force, those will take precedence over information contained here e.g.,certain activities may be curtailed. Village and Community Halls are multi-purpose premises, so it is based on interpretation, as far as possible, of the Government’s Roadmap Out of Lockdown (22nd February 2021), guidance published for Businesses and other venues (updated 23rd March 2021) and that for re-opening of Playgrounds and Out of School Settings. However, it is not possible to go into the detail of all the relevant Government guidance and links are given in Section 6. Government Guidance for Community Facilities has yet to be reissued. The guidance for gym/leisure facilities, grassroots sport and performance may be subject to further adjustment so the links given should be checked alongside the summaries in Appendices J and K. This Sheet may be updated in accordance with any subsequent government guidance.
