05 May An update from Halesworth Community Sport & Leisure
The new trustees feel that it is very important to keep the community up to date on the development of the charity. Firstly, we would like to thank the public for their support over the past weeks and hope that it will continue.
Five Halesworth Town councillors have stepped up and have been working hard over the past week to take the reins at HCSL and look to move things forward for the charity, and in turn, the clubs and the community.
The Five Halesworth Town Councillors have now been appointed as Trustees on the HCSL and are dedicated to resolving past issues and more importantly to moving forward.
At their second meeting, the Councillor Trustees, unanimously accepted the nominated representatives from the sports clubs at Dairy Hill as Trustees of HCSL. All of the amendments have been made to The Charity Commission and will be shown as soon as they have updated their website.
The HCSL constitution allows for five Trustees nominated by the Town Council and five nominated by the clubs, four of which have now been appointed. The constitution also allows for three independent Trustees who would play an important role in bringing experience and expertise to the committee. If you have an interest in the community, charity work, team work or sports and leisure in general and have skills that you think might make you an asset to the charity, then please send your details to

We would like to remind the community that we are all new trustees and have volunteered to join the HCSL to help move it forward. There is a lot to do in the short term and your support, help and patience will be greatly appreciated. We are all looking forward to working together as a team to oversee the smooth running of the sport and leisure facilities for the community of Halesworth and surrounding villages.
