Elton Community centre CIO
There is a AGM 25/05/21 at 7pm at Elton Community Centre to go through the accounts April 2020 until March 2021. All welcome to attend remotely or in person if Covid 19 Government advise allows.
We changed to a more modern open and helpful in the way the centre is run with our new CIO.
We need members of the community to join the centre as members of the CIO. 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. We want everyone to have their say in the centre.
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.
Anyone in the village over the age of 16 can join the CIO as a member with no obligation to Volunteer or needing to become a trustee.
You can volunteer or help the centre without living in the village and don't need to be a member or a trustee to volunteer.
An associate member of the CIO is someone who wants to be a member but does not live in the village, but associate members cannot vote.
Members receive updates regarding the centre although we publish this on the website, in the way of news and copies of the minutes of meetings.
Members will be able to vote in person, by email or by proxy (someone voting on the members behalf).
The attached document is the full copy of the CIO (ECC CIO document PDF document) and the rules within it that mainly apply in detail to the Trustees and the way the centre is run. This may have very minor changes as the changes in status are still in progress. The version will be updated on the website accordingly. Any other documents relating to the AGM will also be added as we have them available.
To Join as a CIO member you can do one of the following.
1. Ask in the centre and we can arrange a form with you, but we don't always have to hand. Any we do have are in the book share entrance hall.
2. Complete a attached CIO form and return in PDF or photo format. It is ok to authorise by email rather than physically sign the form, emailing the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. only.
3. Print one of the attached application forms and post once completed through the Community centre letter box or hand to a volunteer.
Our charity number is currently 520048 however this will change as a result of changing to a CIO charity from the existing Charity status.
Any questions please ask at the centre, email email@example.com or call Vicki on 07846 378 209. The community café is a great place to ask.
