Decision details

Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum Trust - Annual Report 2012/13

Decision Maker: Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum Trust Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To approve the 2012/13 annual report for the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum Trust for submission to the Charity Commission.

 

Decision:

That the 2012/13 annual report for the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum Trust, attached as Appendix A to the report of the Head of Finance and Resources, be approved for submission to the Charity Commission.

 

Reasons for the decision:

On 12 March 2007 the Charity Commission, in consultation with Maidstone Borough Council, created a new Scheme which appointed the Council as sole trustee of the Regimental Museum Charity.  Ownership of the Trust’s assets passed to the Council which now has responsibility for managing, curating and insuring the Collection.

 

The old Regimental Trust has become an un-registered charity known as a Combined Fund.  The Council has a Duty of Consultation to report once a year on matters relating to the management of the Collection to a nominated representative of the Combined Fund (the Secretary of the Queen’s Own Buffs Association, based at the PWRR Barracks in Canterbury).  The Council must produce an annual report and accounts for the Charity Commission.

 

Alternative options considered:

Any alternative course of action would not meet the requirements of the Charity Commission.  This could undermine public confidence in the ability of the Council to manage the Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum Trust.
