Long Buckby Children’s Recreation Ground
New Committee Members Sought
Long Buckby Children’s Recreation Ground (LBCRG) is a Charitable Trust set up in 1967 to provide a children’s playground for the benefit of the parish of Long Buckby. The Trust Deed states that that the general management and control of the property shall be invested in a Management Committee of volunteers comprising five adult residents of Long Buckby. Four shall be elected at a General Meeting. The fifth will be a Parish Councillor nominated and appointed to the Committee by the PC. The committee will comprise: Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and two committee members.
Nominations / Expressions of Interest are sought from members of the parish to fulfil these roles. These can be via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Long Buckby Rec, 2A Stenhouse Close, Long Buckby, NN6 7YJ, giving full contact details, reasons for wanting to join the committee together with the name and contact details of a seconder to the nomination.
