The Parish Council has voted to step in as the sole managing trustee taking on the administration of the Necton Rural Community Centre to ensure it remains open and accessible to the village.
The Necton Rural Community Centre is a charitable organisation currently run by a management committee of volunteers from the village. However, this committee wish to step down and have asked the Parish Council for help in securing the future of the charity.
NRCC is a charity – and will remain a charity. Its administration will transfer from individual trustees to the Parish Council on the 1 October. The operational management of the centre and charity will be run by the Parish Clerk along with a small working group of volunteers. The following couple of months will see the formulation of that operational structure.
On Saturday, 1 August, the Council held an open day at the centre, using the Summer Fayre as an opportunity to chat to residents and inform of the exciting changes ahead. One such change is the opening of a new Parish Office at the centre, from where the Council will operate. This office will be fully functional by the 1 October.
Cllr Webb, our Chairman, spoke with The Breckland View on the day and you can hear this interview here.
