Village hall selfie challenge 2021

Monday 25th January - Sunday 31st January 2021

 #villagehallselfie 

2021 was a scaled down celebration due to the Covid19 pandemic events and caches were not being published. Local lockdowns and restrictions on travel meant finding a geocache unless there is one in your local village was also not be recommended. Therefore the 2021 profile badge was offered to those completing a selfie challenge at a local village hall with instructions as follows - 

To claim the badge

  • Walk to your local village hall (it doesn’t matter if there is no cache there yet, if you have already found it or you own the cache)

  • Take a selfie at the hall (if you do not want to include your face a thumbs up selfie is fine)

  • Post your photo on the Village Hall Series - Geocaching Facebook page or on Instagram tag @villagehallseries 

  • In your post include your geocaching name, the name of the Village Hall and either the GC number or ‘No Geocache here yet’ and the hashtag #villagehallselfie

  • If you do not access to social media then email your selfie or thumbs up photo and the information listed above to villagehallseries@gmail.com

 

The hall can be a Village hall, Parish hall, Community Centre, Reading room, Church hall etc. As long as it is a local hall for the community to use for groups and activities.
