What is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation? Below is a link with a full explanation
Charity Commission Explanation
As part of the constitution of a CIO the organisation must have a set of object which describe the work of the CIO. The draft constitution has very broad objects so the CIO can do many things other than just run a library.
The objective of the organisation is:
- To advance and promote the education for individuals, organisations and companies in Castle Donington and surrounding area.
- To disseminate information to the general public.
- To provide recreation and leisure facilities for the general public.
As last the Castle Donington Community Library has a website up and running!
Things are moving forward. Myself, Colin Burton and Fiona Palmer had a meeting this week with LCC library services to try and move forward the purchase of the library building on Delven Lane.
The paperwork for submission to the charities commission is in draft and currently being checked.
It is time to start to re-contact all the people who have shown an interest in the new community library. If everyone would register on this site it becomes much easier to contact people.
