This month, Dallington Old School publishes our annual newsletter Old School News January 2021 to coincide with National Village Halls Week .
Organised by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England), Village Halls Week is “a national celebration of the 10,000+ village halls which can be found across England, their volunteers and the difference they make to the rural communities they serve” – this years theme is “Celebrating 100 years of village halls”. Find out more about NVHW and the programme of events -sadly all online this year due to Covid restrictions – at https://acre.org.uk/our-work/village-halls-week You can also follow us on Twitter (@DallingtonOSVH) to see how we’re joining in.
We also have our own entry in the new Village Halls Domesday Book, which is creating an online record “to demonstrate how important these buildings are, and what is needed to make sure they survive in the future”
Do take a look at our newsletter Old School News January 2021 FINAL to find out what the Old School Management Committee have been doing behind the scenes to maintain and improve the fabric of the building while we are closed and to implement new procedures so we can re-open safely and confidently when permitted to do so. We can’t wait to welcome you all back as soon as possible
