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.
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.
