Abermule Community Centre Strength in Community

Motion passed at Friend of Abermule Community Centre EGM 21/02/3019

At the EGM of Friends of Abermule Community Centre on 21st February at 7.30pm, the following motion was passed.

"THAT the Friends of Abermule Community be dissolved at earliest opportunity and funds held be transferred to Abermule Community Centre, where it will be placed in a designated Community Centre Development Fund."

Reasons for motion:

  1. Easier planning of Community Centre Development projects.
  2. Simplified administration.
  3. Less officials/post holders required
  4. Community Centres no longer receive revenue grant funding from Powys CC and therefore not now required to report level of funds held to PCC
  5. Holding funds separately to support grant applications no longer necessary.
  6. Other financial benefits enjoyed by Friends of Abermule Communtiy Centre historically, no longer available
  7. Reduce the amount of time consuming HSBC Account reviews that need to be undertaken.
  8. All related funding will come within the current Audit arrangements.
  9. No fund raising undertaken in recent years under Friends of Abermule Communtiy Centre umbrella (previously major events like the annual pantomime provided large fund contributions)

Trustees of Abermule Communtiy Centre Association will shortly discuss how this motion will be scheduled and implemented.
