Stinchcombe Village Hall Vacancy

The Village Hall Committee will shortly have a vacancy for a Treasurer.

Following many years of loyal service by Sarah Tweed. Sarah is sadly stepping down due to other commitments and the desire to spend more time travelling. The vacancy will start at the AGM in November; however, we hope to get someone sooner to ‘learn the ropes’ before Sarah departs. Without belittling Sarah or understating the responsibility, the position is mainly keeping management accounts, online Banking and paying suppliers. Working alongside the Bookings officer and producing a summarised Cash flow report monthly. Qualifications are less important but an active role in account management is essential.

It is an unpaid position as with all the Committee who are also Trustees. We are a registered Charity, so an annual report has to be filed to the Charities Commission with the help of the Chairman. We hold around 8 meetings a year and we would expect the new Treasurer to attend most of these meetings. The Hall has been busier over the past few years and is entering an exciting period of improvements and updating to cater for the increasing demands and future needs of our Community. The successful candidate will have an important role and will have a part in its future success.

Apply in confidence for an informal chat to Charlie Oakhill (Chairman) charlieoakhill@hotmail.com

Trustee Vacancy – Stinchcombe United Charities

New Trustee Sought

Do you live in Stinchcombe and might be interested in becoming a trustee?

Stinchcombe United Charities is a collection of six charities regulated by the Charity Commission which have been supporting the people of Stinchcombe for centuries. Over that time, they have provided financial support to countless parishioners in times of hardship or distress and have assisted Stinchcombe’s young people with the cost of their studies.

Maeve Aldridge has recently retired as a trustee of the Charities. The Board is very grateful for her support since 2010 and is now looking for another parishioner to continue the Charities’ work in Stinchcombe.

The new trustee will join 7 other trustees and the Vicar of St Cyr’s who is an ex-officio trustee. The role is not particularly onerous, usually involving attendance at one or two meetings per year to ensure that income is managed and allocated in accordance with the governing document.

Becoming a trustee of Stinchcombe United Charities is a good way to get to know the local community better. If you would like to hear more about the role, please get in touch with me or any of the following trustees for a chat – Russ Holloway, John Pinch, Joan Jelfs, Richard Jones, Julie Thomas, Charlie Oakhill, Rev. Fiona Crocker.

To apply for this vacancy, please contact:

Piers Court Footpath

A number of people have escalated the closure of the Piers Court footpaths to the Parish Council and we under took to investigate with the Public Rights of Way (PRoW) office and report back.

The PRoW received a call from Ms Lawton last week to advise that some trees on the estate had been damaged in the wind and rain the previous week and some of them were over hanging the paths. Most of the trees have preservation orders on them so permission had been sought from Mark Hemming at the District Council to carry out the urgent work. Ms Lawton advised that her Arborist was to carry out the work over two days this weekend and was it ok to close the path to the public for that short period. As it was too late to process an emergency or urgent works Order, PRoW authorised the closure with the proviso that the paths should be re-opened as soon as the work was complete – I understand that only two days were required.

The footpaths are now open again and ready for your enjoyment.

Anyone wanting further details feel free to contact me directly

Thanks

Simon
