Vacancy for a Parish Council Representative on the Metfield United Charities Board of Trustees

Are you interested in helping the people of Metfield?

There is now a vacancy for a Parish Council representative on the Metfield United Charities Board of Trustees. Metfield residents benefit from two Registered Charitable Funds administered by six volunteer Trustees under a Charity Commission Order of 1917.  They originate from gifts by local benefactors in the 16th century to support people of the parish.

One fund owns the Christmas Lane allotments and some agricultural lands which are managed and leased by the Trustees. They also contribute financially when help is needed by parishioners in cases of sickness, long-term illness or hospitalisation, as well as with travelling costs to hospitals and the supply of fuel, clothing and other necessities.

The other fund is an Educational Foundation providing grants to university students, apprentices and people in further education. Contributions are also made for school outings and residential courses for Metfield children at local schools.

The role of a Trustee is to assist with the administration and distribution of these funds to villagers and is totally voluntary. You do not have to be a member of the Parish Council to apply.

You must be a resident of Metfield to apply. The successful candidate will be co-opted onto the Trustees at the next meeting. If you would like to join the Trustees, please contact the Parish Clerk (details above) with a short paragraph describing what you could bring to the role.

The closing date for applications is Friday 26 February 2021.
