The Bucks Gardens Trust was initially set up almost as a club in 1997, and did not really get ‘legalised’, though we had a founding constitution etc, until perhaps 2000, when our colleagues in Oxford, under the then leadership of Richard Mawrey QC, steered us in the right direction.
We eventually registered as a both a Company Limited by Guarantee and a Registered Charity, in 2003, I think. Our Registered Office has moved a couple of times since, and I assume we are still legally constituted.
It might be as well to re-examine the situation given changes in both company and charity law since our founding, and I hope and presume our current Chairman and board are on top of this.
