Guidance for reopening community premises

Thu 2 Jul 2020

Re-opening of community premises can begin to take place after 6th July, and careful consideration by trustees should be given to ensure community buildings are COVID secure.

The latest ACRE’s information sheet looks at how village halls can prepare risk assessments, ensure social distancing once open and introduce effective cleaning regimes. There are some practical resources too including checklists, notices for display in halls and sample terms of hire.

The ACRE information is available by contacting your local Support Staffordshire Rural Officers:
