Many of our community buildings have been operating at the heart of our rural communities for over the last 100 years. As Cambridgeshire ACRE celebrates its centenary, this special in-person conference will provide an opportunity to learn from the longevity of the community buildings network and all that has been achieved over the last 100 years in the building and management of these key local facilities.
The conference will bring together trustees and others interested in the management of community buildings, allowing us to learn from the past and prepare for the future sustainability of village halls and other community buildings.
Looking ahead to the future, we will look at how we can ensure these vital community buildings continue to thrive. We will examine what changes and support might be needed with:
- implementing eco-improvements to save energy and reduce their carbon footprint;
- carrying out effective business and financial planning; and
- understanding what our rural communities might need and expect when using these facilities.
Held on Thursday 21 March 2024, during Village Halls Week, this conference will also be used to launch Cambridgeshire ACRE travelling Centenary exhibition that tells the story of our work over the past 100 year and the new Halls for Hire website, an important tool to increase village hall bookings.
