VILLAGE HALL 

The charity provides facilities and volunteers to facilitate social, educational and recreational activities for the population of Butterknowle and the surrounding area.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 4 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
Established: 62 years
