New grant scheme to improve village halls

The government has committed to supporting over 100 rural community buildings with capital improvements, following in the footsteps of investments made in village halls as part of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee (1897) and King George V‘s Silver Jubilee (1935).

Full details of the application process and the eligibility criteria for village halls wishing to apply for the fund are yet to be released by the government. In the meantime, ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) is recommending halls complete a short form to register their interest and be kept informed about developments.
