AGM Presentation 2020


Reopening Village Halls and Community Centres

ACRE have produced a further update reflecting recent changes in government guidelines, some of which took a bit of sorting out.

The main changes are to Appendices C,D,E and M – copies attached. Two key messages reflecting most of the queries I’ve received over the last week or so – displaying a QR code is now Mandatory for all community buildings, and (as we have said previously) the Rule of Six should not in principle limit numbers for most community activities PROVIDED that full social distancing is maintained, and NO MINGLING takes place.
