“Garth Club” hall
have your say
time to act
Miss Capron paid for the land and the club to be built as a community facility, in memory of her nephew, killed during World War I.
Originally aimed at young service men, its use was broadened, with her agreement, to serve the whole community.
Varied events were held there until it had to close in about 2011, after an unsuitable roof repair carried out on behalf of the current Trustee, the Royal British Legion.
The building’s Trustee, have not so far repaired the building but wishes instead to hand the trusteeship over to the community.
We think it is time to resolve this matter, in a way that serves the community, honours Miss Capron’s legacy and meets the Charity Commission’s requirements.
