Village Trust

 

 

Trust Objectives 

 

The Halstock Village Trust holds village money to help fund village projects and amenities for the Village  - as determined by the trustees who are

 

Martin Manning (chairman and Treasurer)  891394

Bardy Griffiths  891736

Peter Lemmey 891377

Allison Rees  891782

Dave Wright  891449

 

Thus, HVT donates to meet village needs, hold the residual mortgage on Halstock Village Shop Ltd and has acted as banker for the Halstock Community Room (HCR), which is managed by Tony Hill and the Committee.

 

Trust resources are increasing. Now that the mortgage on the shop has been paid off to Triodos Bank or transferred to the Trust, the shop and flat profits will come to the Village Trust.  The usable reserve stands at £33000 and HVT holds the Village Shop mortgage of £59500.

 

The reserve is held at a high enough level in case a major expense is required which needs significant funds - such as a playground or similar requirement.

 

Donations must be for the benefit of all or a large part of the village and are not available for individual projects or for maintenance of items which are properly the role of the County or District Councils.

 

As has been promulgated every year at the Annual Village Meeting (AVM) - which is also the AGM for the HVT - if anyone has a village project which needs funding, then contact one of the trustees as above.

 

 

Money Distributed in last 5 years

(apart from money paid to/for Community Room running)

 

Up until 2017 there was limited income, but since 2017 the shop and flat profits now come to the HVT so receipts and distributions have risen.
