Glenridding Public Hall

Glenridding Public Hall

The legal procedure to enable the Glenridding Public Hall to achieve incorporated status is now complete. It was registered with the Charity Commission on 22nd February 2016. Other formalities were addressed at the Patterdale Parish Council meeting of 22nd March 2016. During the period leading up to incorporation 12 local residents were asked if they would like to be trustees and the details can be found on the Charity Commission web site (please see the Links Page Section 8). The public hall is therefore no longer an asset of the parish council and will be run as a separate entity with its own trustees.
