TRUNCH VILLAGE SOCIETY
The Trunch Village Society came into being as a result of the Trunch Parish Plan and was created to raise funds for village groups and projects. It is a non-profit-making organisation and all money raised is used for village projects and activities. It actively looks for village projects to help fund, holds funds for project groups like the composting scheme and awards one off grants to various other activities.
Some of the projects that have benefited from a Grant Award since the Trunch Village Society began are:-
Bumbles Pre-School – Village Hall – St Botolph’s Church – Methodist Church – Primrose Club – Blacksmiths Close Lunch Club
Wednesday Club – Knitting and Stitching Group – Playing Field Steering Group – Village Web Site – Church Music Concerts
Bee Keeping Group – Meadow Wild Flower Garden – Cider Co-op – Garden Society – Art Groups
New in 2014 we have been actively supporting the maintenance and management of Rectory Meadow – an area designated as a wildflower/wildlife meadow to the NW of the Rectory, in conjunction with Peter Horsefield, whose late wife Anne, many will remember, was an avid wildlife lover who regularly wrote lovely articles about local wildlife in the Mardle. An archive of some of these articles is maintained elsewhere on this website.
The Society liaises with the Parish Council and other regulatory bodies, keeping them informed of the Society’s activities. Membership is FREE and open to any resident in the Parish of Trunch and simply requires registration with the Society’s secretary. General meetings (open to all members) are held three times a year.
On the notice board outside the shop (situated near the telephone kiosk) you will find information of the current committee members, project grants awarded for the financial year and copies of the minutes of the last meeting. Copies of past Minutes and the Constitution are available from the Secretary.
Applications for a Grant need to made in writing and be with the Secretary by the 31st. December, for approval at the first Ordinary General Meeting (normally February) in the following year, however emergency grants may be awarded at other times of the year.
