RFOTR: Excellent News From The Charity Commission!

At long last the Charity Commission has made the decision to go ahead and adopt its Scheme for the Rec. This is excellent news as it clears away a major roadblock to the development of a new arena and new facilities on the Rec enabling 'All Sports for All People'.

The Committee of the Real Friends of the Rec is delighted with this decision and would like to acknowledge the efforts of the Chair of the Rec Trust, Cllr David Dixon, and the other Trustees whose patience over several years has now paid off. We are also pleased that adoption of the Scheme incorporates the concept of a 'Land Swap' that was raised by a RFOTR member at a RFOTR meeting a few years back.

We would also like to thank RFOTR members for all the representations that they made to the Charity Commission about the Scheme at the end of last year. 87% of the representations made to the Charity Commission supported the Scheme.
