Government scheme funds village halls in England

Posted by Mark Carlisle on January 24th 2020 in AGRICULTURAL AND RURAL AFFAIRS .

On 20 January 2020, the government has funded £1.2 million to village halls in England for these communities to make refurbishments. The fund recognises the importance of village halls and the scheme will allow village halls to continue to effectively play a role in rural communities.

Village hall committees can apply for grants of up to £75,000 towards refurbishing and altering their buildings through the government's grant scheme, run by charity organisation Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE).
