The parish council is sole trustee to two charities:
Pitstone Recreation Ground Charity (1094867)
Owns and manages the recreation ground off Vicarage Road. The stated aim is to provide facilities and open space for the inhabitants of the parish of Pitstone and the surrounding areas to freely enjoy for leisure, recreation and sport. The charity has no financial holding, any costs are met by Pitstone Parish Council.
Full updates are provided within the Trustees Annual Report and Accounts.
Pitstone Parish Charity (261752)
Originally the ‘Allotments for the Labouring Poor’ charity but a revised scheme was approved in March 2004 to broaden the objectives to ‘the relief of persons resident in the area of benefit who are in need, hardship or distress’. This charity has no financial holding but will be the beneficiary of a single lump-sum income when the Pitstone Development Area land is sold. Once this investment starts to generate an income, the charity can start to fulfil its objectives.
Full details are provided within the Trustees Annual Report and Accounts.
The parish council is also custodian trustee to the Pitstone Memorial Hall Charity, which is managed by a separate Management Committee.
