Village Halls Week – 22nd to 28th January 2019

 Village Halls week has been created by our umbrella organisation Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) as a way to celebrate your local village hall and to increase the profile of village halls in general by spreading the news about what goes on in them.

It will be great if you could let me know what events or activities you have coming up, so that I can highlight them on our website and through social media. You can also use the #VillageHallsWeek on through your own social media if you are keen! It really is a great opportunity to bring to attention the fantastic role the village hall plays in the community and how diverse some of the activities on offer are.    Please remember that If your hall is on Twitter please follow @VillageHalls_Wk during the week.

 Also the hashtag #VillageHallsWeek will be used on Facebook and Instagram for all posts during the week in order to link activities across the counties of England.

Please also look out a new blog post on the ACRE website everyday throughout the week http://www.acre.org.uk/

Geocaching – the village hall series

Do you know what Geocaching is?

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants (Geocachers) use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”). The world’s biggest treasure hunt!   Here is some more information about it https://www.geocaching.com/blog/2018/03/what-is-geocaching/

Did you know that there is a village hall series of Geocaches? And that for the second year running the series will be celebrating Village Halls Week.  A profile badge will be offered for finding a cache and also for hosting or attending a Village hall Week Event.

Here is a list of the Village Hall Geocaching Events published for Village Hall Week 2019.   https://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?code=BM604WX
