Elton Community centre is changing its Constitution to a CIO (Charitable Incorporated organisation).
This is more modern open and helpful in the way the centre is run. We need
members of the community to join the centre as members. It is free and
you don't have to give any time, the only commitment is to take interest
in the centre and Vote at AGMs (to appoint trustees to run the centre)
or at Extraordinary meetings if needed.
The objectives of Elton community centre (the reason the centre exists, and as such the way it should be run) are.
The objects of the CIO are to further or benefit the residents of the
village and civil parish of Elton, Cheshire and the neighbourhood, without
distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious or
other opinions by associating together the said residents and the local
authorities, voluntary and other organisations in a common effort to advance
education and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for
recreation and leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the
conditions of life for the residents.
