Proposed new Constitution for Forncett Village Hall

Written by Brian Frith.

The Village Hall was 'founded' in 1952.  The Trust Deed from that date has, over the years, become out of date and the Trustees ('The Management Committee') have been working to develop a new constitution more relevant to the present situation.  

Please note that, under Charity Commission rules, the Objects of the Charity remain the same, but this new Constitution proposes revision of the make-up of the Committee, period of office etc.

A special public meeting will be held on Tuesday 27th February 2018, starting at 7.30pm in Forncett Village Hall, where the following motion will be proposed: 

RESOLVED, pursuant to section 280 of the Charities Act 2011, to replace the 1952 constitution of the charity with the 2018 constitution set out below* with effect from 1st April 2018 - and to note that the objects of the charity are unchanged.

*Copies of the proposed new constitution will be available

  • at the meeting or
  • in advance of the meeting by phoning 01953 789882, or
  • on the '' website ( ) here
  • via the link on Forncett Village Hall Facebook page

The original (1952) Constitution can be downloaded here

All members of the Public are invited to attend this meeting to ask questions about the proposed changes and contribute to the discussion before the existing Trustees vote on the proposal.
