YOUR SUPPORT NEEDED
Caryford Hall has recently been successful in registering as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and is seeking assistance on a voluntary or Pro Bono basis with establishing financial systems for the new organisation, having in mind the short term needs to manage grant funding and the re-tendering and award of a contract for completion of our ambitious extension project.
This is initially envisaged as short term involvement, supporting the Management Committee over the next few months. However, the role could be extended, as we have a vacancy on the committee for a Treasurer to take a lead with financial matters and oversee day to day activities such as bookkeeping, which will be resourced separately.
If you are interested in the role and would like more information, please contact Ian Bynoe on 01963 350655 or email:

The Treasurer takes the lead amongst the Trustees for running of the financial aspects of the Hall, including:
keeping a record of financial transactions;
making sure that payments are made on time and pursuing debtors;
ensuring that the “money in the bank” is sufficient to meet the Hall’s commitments;
taking a lead on preparing the Annual Budget
preparing financial reports to the trustees so that they can see how well the charity is performing against its plans and budgets.
The Treasurer will also be involved in managing funds for the Hall’s ambitious building extension project, as well as making contract payments during the building work.

updating the wording of operational documents (e.g. the standard written hiring agreement and its conditions) after amendments have been agreed

The Committee of Trustees which manages the Hall wishes to recruit several new Committee Members.
You will be enthusiastic for non-for-profit endeavours and be keen to work with a team of local people to manage the Hall for community benefit, efficiently and effectively. The Hall is a charity and the positions are voluntary. Reasonable expenses incurred in the role will be reimbursed.
Committee members decide how the Hall is managed and take day to day responsibility for the tasks needed to operate a busy, popular and well used building.
These tasks include:
building inspection and maintenance
liaison with hirers
planning and organising local fundraising events in the Hall
New Committee members will make a crucial contribution to the smooth running of the Committee and the Hall and to the successful completion of its ambitious building extension project.
