The Village Hall – Statutory Consultation

This consultation has now closed; a summary of input received will be posted here shortly.

The Lympstone Herald for July included (page 9) an article about the plans of the charity trustees of the village hall (who form the Village Hall Management Committee) to set up a new charitable body to manage the hall, which would replace the current charity, dating back to 1930. Unlike the existing charity, the new body would be be incorporated – a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). The article referred to the reasons for the trustees’ decision and the steps that would be necessary to implement it. Further information was placed on the village hall website and comments or questions were invited.

Before the hall land and premises can be transferred from the existing charity to the CIO  the trustees are required by charity law to give formal public notice of that intent, inviting representations within a specified time; and to take any such representations into consideration.

The trustees accordingly give notice that, as part of their plans to establish a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, they intend that the Lympstone Village Hall land and premises should  be transferred to the proposed new CIO, when established; and that any representations about this proposal should be made to the secretary (address details below) by Monday 14 October 2019..
