The Old School has been sold



Following the sale of Thurmaston Old School Community Centre in January 2021, the Trustee Board met on 15 February 2021 for their Annual General Meeting. It was agreed to dissolve the charity, and an application will now be made to the Charity Commission for England and Wales for the charity to be dissolved and removed from the Register of Charities. In accordance with the constitution registered with the Charity Commission, the net assets of the charity will be applied to the Parochial Church Council of St Michael & All Angels, Thurmaston – the legal entity behind St Michael & All Angels’ Church, Thurmaston. Speaking after the meeting, the Reverend Tim Day, Chair of Trustees and Vicar of Thurmaston said “trustees felt that having sold the building, the charity had run its course and it made sense to apply to the Charity Commission to dissolve the charity”. He continued “there are of course formalities to conclude and final bills to pay before the net assets of the charity can be calculated. It will then be a matter for the Parochial Church Council to decide how best this generous gift might be used by the church to achieve the church’s mission, Living as Christ in our community to share the love of God”. At the Annual General Meeting, trustees also agreed to award Certificates of Appreciation to Mrs Maureen Tebbutt and Mr Darren Gartside for their service as Trustees, and as Treasurer / Lettings Officer, and Secretary, respectively. Arrangements for presentations will be made once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Rev Tim Day concluded “I am very grateful to all who serve and have served within the parish, often sacrificially, of their time, talents, and money”.
