Kingsland Millennium Green Trust – Open Meeting and Treasurer required

Kingsland Millennium Green Trust (KMGT)

Open Meeting

There is an open meeting of the Trustees of KMGT in the Coronation Hall on Sat 22nd February at 10am. Please feel free to come along and if you would like coffee beforehand, that will be available from 9.30am. 

Copies of the agenda can be obtained by emailing kmgtsecretary@outlook.com or calling the telephone number below. 

New Treasurer Required

Following the resignation of our current Honorary Treasurer, after sterling work over the last few years, KMGT is now looking for a new Honorary Treasurer. The role involves keeping the books and records of the registered charity, paying any bills when invoices are submitted and ensuring that funds received are accounted for. It is not an onerous task and will not take up a huge amount of time. In addition to keeping the books and records, a short report needs to be prepared for the meetings of the Trustees and interested parties (about 5 meetings per year) and ideally the Treasurer will be available to attend those meetings. A basic understanding of book-keeping is required in order that KMGT can fulfil its obligations to the Charity Commission.

Expressions of interest should be sent to the KMGT Chair – Sebastian Bowen on wlsb@me.com or call his mobile 07831 636537. Alternatively emails can be sent to kmgtsecretary@outlook.com and they will be passed on. 

It should be noted that the maintenance of the Green is totally funded by voluntary contributions received from within the Community. No funding is received from either the Parish Council or Herefordshire Council in respect of ongoing maintenance. The Trustees are extremely grateful for the continued support for the Green from the residents of Kingsland and the surrounding area.

Telephone Fraud – urgent message from Leominster Police Safer Neighbourhood Team

Over the last week, there have been numerous incidents within Herefordshire whereby older community members have been scammed out of their hard earned cash. Scammers have phoned up claiming to be a police officer and that there has been fraudulent or theft activity on the persons bank account. They have gained their trust and eventually have asked for that money, so that it can be put into ‘safe keeping’.

It is really important that we get the message out to older members of the community not to give out personal details and especially not banking details to anyone. I have attached a leaflet which has the relevant information on it. (Download by clicking here)

If you have any information regarding these incidents, or are concerned for a member of your community please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards
