North Luffenham Village Trust
Notice of Proposal to Amend the Scheme under which the Trust Operates
The Trustees of the North Luffenham Village Trust are proposing to make 2 changes to the current charity Scheme wording. Prior to making a formal application to the Charity Commission to amend the scheme, the Trustees are consulting with key stakeholders to obtain feedback on the proposals. Key stakeholders are the Parish Council, The Parochial Church Council and villagers who are potential beneficiaries of the Scheme. The period of consultation is running until midnight on Sunday 8th December after which the Trustees will consider any modifications arising from the consultation, before submitting a formal application for a revised scheme to the Charity Commission.
The proposed changes are as follows:
1. Change to the definition of “the area of benefit”
Original wording: Section #1 – Definitions: “the area of benefit” means the The Parish of North Luffenham and the surrounding neighbourhood.
Proposed Wording: Section #1 – Definitions: “the area of benefit” means the The Parish of North Luffenham and the surrounding area as defined by the Civil Parish Boundary.
Rationale: In the light of the proposals for the development of the St George’s Barracks site just over the current civil parish boundary, the Trustees are concerned that the ability of the Trust to support people living in North Luffenham could be severely diluted if the new development were to be included in its area of benefit through a loose definition. As the original intention was to support people in and around the village of North Luffenham, the Trustees propose clarifying the boundary of the area of benefit to avoid any future risk of major new developments adversely impacting the value of the Trust to local inhabitants.
2. Change to the Objects of the Charity in relation to promotion of education:
Original wording: Section #4 (1) (a): promoting the education of persons who are under the age of 18 and are in need of financial assistance and have at any time attended a school in the area of benefit.
Proposed Wording: Section #4 (1) (a): promoting the education of persons who are in need of financial assistance and have at any time attended a school in the area of benefit or are now resident in the area of benefit.
Rationale: When the objects were originally drafted, few people continued in education after the age of 18. As times have changed and many now go on to further education and university, the Trust receives many applications from university students seeking support with maintenance, travel and materials costs. The Trustees would like to make clear in the objects that university and mature students are eligible for support and that providing such support is fully aligned with the original aims and intentions of the Scheme given the change in society. The trustees therefore propose to remove reference to an age limit and also to provide scope to assist those who move into the village even if they have not previously attended the village school.
If you have any comments or suggestions relating to the proposed changes, please send your feedback in writing to the Clerk of Trustees by midnight on Sunday 8th December as follows:

An arch of knitted and crocheted poppies has been created by village residents to produce a cascade of flowers around the entrance to the church to commemorate the centenary of the ending of the Great War on Remembrance Day.
This wonderfully detailed Remembrance Kneeler, crafted by Liliane Coogan and Fay Cummings, will be presented in Church tomorrow during the Remembrance Day service.
I would also be interested to hear from anyone with an association with the school, perhaps ex-pupils or teachers who would be happy to share their memories with me.
