Kingsland Millennium Green Trust (KMGT)

Open Meeting

At the AGM and Open Meeting held on 12th September 2020, within the then current covid-19 guidelines, it was hoped that the next meeting could be held in November. As everyone will be aware the covid-19 requirements have since changed and thus THE MEETING DUE FOR SAT 21ST NOVEMBER HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Please feel free to use our wonderful Green whilst observing all the requirements in order to stay safe and well.

New Treasurer Required

Following the resignation of our 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 very short report needs to be prepared for the meetings of the Trustees and interested parties (about 5 meetings per year – covid-19 permitting!) 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.
