The Recreation Ground was gifted to the Town over a century ago and a Trust Deed was set up in 1910, establishing a Charitable Trust for its management. The Trust passed to Kington Town Council many
years ago and the Town Council is, in law, the Charitable Trustee.
The Recreation Ground Trust therefore follows council procedures in relation to its governance, but meets separately to council meetings. The Recreation Ground Trust has established a Management Group to look after day to day issues concerning the Recreation Ground and its users.
The Town Council makes an annual grant available to the Trust to enable it to carry out its responsibilities.
Recreation Ground Trustees/ Trust meetings are open to the public and are now held on the first Monday of the month at 6pm, prior to the meeting of the full council.
Members of the Users Group attend User Group meetings by invitation: Management meetings are not open to the public.
