Closure of PH(N)RA

Plain PH(N)RA Logo

Dear Association Member,

As you may recall back in September 2021, the Chairman’s report outlined the problems we were having getting new people to come forward and serve on the committee.

The report specified a timescale of December 2021 for individuals to apply for positions. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen so without sufficient committee members we’ve been given no choice but to wind-down the Association.

With the Pound Hill North Facebook page reaching over 10k members, it is clear that the traditional residents associations no longer resonate with a younger audience and the older membership is reaching an age when they are unable to actively contribute.

As per the constitution, we are going to donate the residual funds to charity. Last year we gave the membership the opportunity to suggest a charity. With only a handful of responses there were no overwhelming suggestions, so the selections made previously by the committee members are going to be used.

We will donate an equal percentage of the remaining funds to each of the charities listed below.

Rangers Lodge Wildlife Hospital Registered charity No. 1193206 Paid
Coroners Court Support Service Registered charity No. 1105899 Paid
Crawley Open House Registered charity No. 1048919 Paid
Deafblind UK Registered charity No. 802976 Paid
Alzheimer’s Society Registered charity No. 296645 Paid

There is no plan for further written confirmation, The receipts from the charities will be posted on the PH(N)RA website, as will be the final audited accounts. The website will be online until the current hosting package expires on the 04/04/2024
