Village Hall Charitable Trust Meeting – Reminder

Wednesday 27th February, 7.30pm

Wootton Courtenay Village Hall

The Trustees have been concerned for some time as regards their “Personal Liability” for any debts of the Charity that may occur.  We have been advised professionally that the best way to avoid such liability would be to “Incorporate” the Charity into a new legal entity.

At our AGM in July 2018 a vote was taken to progress this matter.

Since then a new Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) No 1180907 has been registered with the Charity Commission.

All Parishioners are invited to attend this meeting where further details will be presented, including a simple comparison between the two Constitutions.  A vote will be taken on three Resolutions that will allow the assets and liabilities of the existing Charitable Trust to be transferred to the newly formed CIO on the 31st March 2019.

Should you have any concerns as regards these changes please be assured that nothing can change without the three Resolutions being carried at this meeting by at least a 75% majority.

In the event that the three Resolutions are carried then the first General Meeting of the CIO will immediately follow to elect the remaining Trustees of the CIO, in addition to the four already appointed for the forthcoming year, commencing 1st April 2019.

Brian Matthews

Chairman of the Village Hall Trustee Committee.
