National guidance for re-opening Village Halls

We are working with Village Halls and Community Buildings throughout Devon to support them as they begin to re-open following the UK's lockdown period. 

Below you will find downloadable national guidance on how halls may safely re-open, shared from ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England), of which Devon Communities Together is a member. 

If you need any support with your community building, please call our helpline on 0808 196 3390.
