At a meeting of Fernham villagers on 17 May 2012, it was agreed that Project Inspire and the Fernham Events Committee should join forces under one charity, which would be renamed as the Fernham Village Trust. As the original project to create a village hall in a rebuilt St. John’s Church was almost complete, the meeting felt that this new name was more suited to the new organisation.
The Fernham Village Trust is officially registered at Companies House and with the Charity Commission. The trust is in charge of the hall, and organises events and activities for the village.
The management committee will be elected every year at the trust’s Annual General Meeting, and members will serve for a year.
