  • 30 January 2011: Resignation Statement, dated 25 January 2011
    The three Trustees who serve on the Executive Committee of Powys FHS as representatives of the Brecknock Group have resigned their positions as Trustees of the Charity with effect from the Executive Meeting of 15th January 2011.
    There have been some fundamental differences between the Brecknock Group Trustees and the Executive Committee going back over a period of years involving a number of Brecknock Group Trustees. In particular, decisions have been made by individual members of the Executive outside minuted Executive meetings. Many of the decisions made in this manner have had financial and legal implications for all the Trustees individually and for the charity as a whole.
    The Brecknock Trustees have also repeatedly raised concerns that the minutes of the Executive Meetings have not reflected the proceedings at the meetings. Accurate records are essential to confirm the legality of the decisions made at the meetings.
    In the light of these unresolved issues the Brecknock Group Trustees felt they had no option but to resign from the Executive Committee of Powys FHS. All the members of the Brecknock Group Committee fully support this decision.
    Trustees: Hilary Williams, John Ball, and Sue Snook
