In 2015, due to concerns regarding the significant liability associated with the role of a trustee of The Hornby Village Trust and prompted by the charity’s weakening financial position a restructuring of responsibilities was undertaken. This has lead to the creation of a private company limited by guarantee, which does not own the property, but means that should Hornby Village Trust cease to be financially viable, each director’s liability would be a nominal amount (£1). The number of trustees has been reduced with the formation of a Committee of Society Representatives (COSR) to advise the trustees. In order to avoid compromising the charitable status of Hornby Village Trust, a new company Hornby Village Trust Trading Company has been created to run the bar.
The restructuring of Hornby Village Trust is as follows:
The Hornby Village Trust – Registration Date: 16th March 1964, Charity Registration Number: 521122
The Hornby Village Trust – Owns the freehold of Hornby Village Institute, the cottage and car park and is responsible for meeting its agreed charitable objects, it currently has 7 Trustees
Hornby Village Trust is divided into:
Private Limited Company by guarantee without share capital and exempt from the requirement to have a name ending with ‘Limited’ or permitted alternative. Incorporated on: 29 April 2015, Company Number: 09567950, it currently has 3 Directors.
Registered Charity Registration Date: 14th October 2015, Charity Registration Number: 1163973, it currently has 8 Trustees.
Hornby Village Trust is responsible as tenant to “The Hornby Village Trust” for the maintenance and upkeep of their property in pursuit of the realisation of its agreed charitable objects.
Hornby Village Trust Trading Company Limited – Private Limited Company (wholly owned by Hornby Village Trust), Incorporated on: 14 April 2015, Company Number: 09541606
