The national survey of village and community halls occurs every 10 years and provides ACRE and it's network members, including RCCE, with some crucial information about how halls are being used, the condition and improvements being made, and whether hall trustees are planning for the future.

It's easy to take part - just click on the link below.  The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and it will be easier and quicker if you have the following information to hand:

  • A copy of your latest end of year accounts
  • A list of hirers - both regular and casual
  • How much you've spent in making improvements
  • What policies you have in place

The information is used to lobby for a continuation of village hall grant funding, to lobby with authority to government and departments on village hall issues and regulation, to help secure funding for the future of Village Hall Advisers across the country, and to highlight to the Press and Media in an engaging and informative way, the role of village halls and the great work of trustees.

A copy of the questions is available to download in pdf format so that you can prepare if needed.....
