Village Hall Insurance

As members of the ACRE [Action with Communities in Rural England] movement, our socially responsible ethos, combined with years of experience in the not for profit sector has been the catalyst for the insurance schemes that we now run.  Our first insurance schemes were designed specifically for Village Halls in Suffolk 25 years ago. As a Rural Community Council, we found that individual halls were finding their insurance covers expensive and somewhat lacking in the requisite covers. Working with Zurich Insurance, we formed group insurance schemes, which have stood the test of time as they bestow the benefits of appropriate cover, shared risk and reduced premiums.

Two Rural Community Councils (Community Action Suffolk & Community First Wiltshire) have combined to bring these benefits to all village halls in England, Wales and Scotland. This is the Village Hall Plus Group.


Excellent Service
In the recent Suffolk ACRE survey of January 2011 94% of respondents found the service excellent/good
