Minutes:

The Trustees gave consideration to the accounts of the Clayton Playing Fields Trust for the year ended 31st March 2016.

 

The Trustees were informed that 2016 was the 50th Anniversary of the Clayton Playing Fields Trust.  The Trustees were also informed that Coldhurst, Chadderton North and Royton South ward councillors had agreed funding for new signage on the fields.

1.       To approve the accounts as set out in the report and make the appropriate annual submission to the Charity Commission by 31st January 2017.

 

2.       To not approve the accounts as set out in the report.  This would mean that the Trust would not be able to make a resolution at their Annual General Meeting and comply with the financial requirements of the Charity Commission.
