Grass Cutting in the Parish
This year the Parish Council has agreed to provide additional grass cutting on significant areas in the villages of Edlesborough, Dagnall and Northall. It is greatly appreciated that many parishioners also take responsibility for cutting grassed areas in front of their properties.
The Charity Commissioners have seen fit to accept Edlesborough Community Sports Club Charitable Incorporated Organisation as a Registered Charity with number 1160939.
In accepting the application the Commission said "The decision to register was based on our assessment of the information supplied during the application process and the declarations given in the trustee declaration form and we are satisfied that EDLESBOROUGH COMMUNITY SPORTS CLUB CHARITABLE INCORPORATED ORGANISATION is established for charitable purposes only for the public benefit."
The trustees feel that it is important that legal and other matters are now dealt with through this Charity, particularly as reassurance to the Parishioners. The trustees made it clear during discussions with the Commission that they intend to retain the present 'limited by guarantee' company as a subsidiary of the Charity as there may be some VAT and other advantages. In accepting the application the Commission accepted both this and that the new Pavilion would be owned by EPC and leased to the Charity, and that the Charity would undertake much of the fund raising work.
The Parish Council wish to thank the Chairman, Trustees and supporters of the project, in particular David Brown for the many hours of work which have made this possible.
