Trust Council Minutes for February 2015

Trust Council met on Tuesday 10th February 2015.   Trustees noted than 2015 marks 25 years since HM The Queen reopened the canal in August 1990.  Ideas for an event marking the anniversary were discussed and the Council agreed that the Trust should renew its event display material.

Wednesday, 11 February 2015

Trust Council met on 13th January.  The meeting reviewed spending, cash flow and budget commitments for 2015.  Treasurer Tony Nares advised that the Trust was unlikely to need to use its overdraft facility this winter.

The Charity Commission had rejected the revised charitable objects agreed at the AGM last May.  Trust Council approved a redraft that captured the same principles but expressed them within the rather restrictive terms required by the Charity Commission.  These have now been resubmitted to the Commission ahead of placing the draft before members at the next AGM in May this year.

Trust Council Minutes for October 2014

The Trust Council met on 7th October 2014.  Trustees reviewed and approved  a draft of the new look Butty produced by the editorial team of Jane & David Inight.

Crofton Chairman Peter Turvey reported on the response of the Heritage Lottery Fund to the pre-application the project team had submitted.  It was becoming clear that we would need a more diverse fund raising strategy to realise the Trust's ambitions for Crofton.  There was certainly scope for an HLF bid but it would not cover the entire project.
