Cropthorne & Charlton Village hall and Playing Field is a charitable community facility that is available
to the public in a particular area for community-related recreational activities.
Village halls are charitable because they held on trust to be used for purposes set out by the Recreational Charities Act 1958.
For further information see the government publication The Recreational Charities Act 1958 (RR4).
The village hall is run by a committee of management – being a committee member means that you are a charity trustee.
The committee manages the hall and determines who uses it.
