Parish Land Charities - Introduction

The two Askerswell Parish Lands Charities each own a donated land holding that generate a small income from their rental. They also receive donations.
Three Parishioner Trustees are appointed for four-year terms by the Parish Meeting. The Trustees report the Charities activities and finances to Parish
Meetings. They produce Agendas and Minutes of their biannual meetings.

There is a small grant scheme to support our inhabitants by providing one-off payments to:

a) counter hardship
b) meet a defined educational need (e.g.textbooks)
c) support for the elderly or infirm or
d) other purposes within the Object of the Charities at the Trustees discretion.

A simple grant application form is available on request from
