Thornham Village Hall and Playing Field Ltd was established as a Company limited by guarantee in 2011 (Reg. Co. No. 07479975) and is a registered Charity (Reg. No. 1141442). The objectives of the charity are, ‘to establish and run a village hall and provide and maintain a recreation and sports ground and children’s playground….in the interests of social welfare and with the object of improving the conditions of life of the inhabitants”.
The day to day running of the facilities is organized by two committees who work with the Trustees. The Grounds Maintenance Committee manages the facilities on the field including the cricket and football pitches, the Multi-Use Games area and the Children’s Play Area. The Village Hall Committee manages the new hall and its facilities.
There are nine Trustees. The Constitution allows for a maximum of ten trustees, three to be nominated by the Parish Council, four to be elected by the community at the Annual General Meeting and three may be co-opted.
The key office holders are the Chairman, the Company Secretary and the Treasurer who are elected from their members by the Trustees at the AGM. The AGM takes place in May. Trustees meet regularly and decisions are taken by majority vote.
