WWT EGM November 12th 2019

An Extraordinary General Meeting of The Whitchurch Waterway Trust was held at The Chester Suite, The Dodington Lodge Hotel, Dodington, Whitchurch SY13 1EN at 1930 on Tuesday 12th November 2019.

It had been resolved to convert WWT from a Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) at the April 2019 AGM. The Extraordinary General Meeting was held to resolve issues The Charity Commission have raised about our proposed CIO constitution, so that the conversion to a CIO can be progressed.

The formal meeting was followed by tea and coffee and a discussion about the long term aims of WWT and to explore support for re-establishing the canal as far as Sherrymill Hill (the old gas works site).

The material for this discusion can be viewed from this page WWT << future >>. This material is being developed a little further prior to a special meeting of the Trustees to be held on January 14th 2020 to start a process to review the future alternatives for the trust.

There is also information on CIO Constitution and WWT History and Plans at the About WWT Page .
