ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England)

We are Network Members of ACRE who run the Village and Community Halls Network which provides an opportunity for us to air views and consolidate them in the development of policies in support of village halls and similar rural community buildings.

We are also grateful to the following companies that offer services to village halls and in return support us with a donation for any Derbyshire halls that sign up to use their service.


The Hallmaster Online Hall & Venue booking system provides a reliable and easy to use online reservation system for church halls, village halls, clubhouses, community centres and all other bookable function rooms.
