Friend’s Proposed Constitution:

For some time the trustees have wanted to amend the Friends’ constitution to distinguish more clearly the different roles of those who serve on the committee, and to take account of wider changes (for example, making payments electronically instead of by cheque) that have occurred since the early 1990s. The Charity Commission’s model constitution for charities like ours has also been extensively revised and expanded since then. After much negotiating, we have its consent to move to the new model. The trustees will propose its adoption at the Annual General Meeting on September 30th and hope it will meet with members’ approval.
