How we work

Wellow recreation is accountable to its members – all residents of Wellow parish who are 16 or older – and is also governed by the rules and regulations of being a charitable incorporated organisation, registered with the Charity Commission.

The final decision making body is a general meeting of villagers – which happens every year.

Eight Trustees are elected each year by the AGM. The Parish Council also appoints two trustees and additional trustees can be appointed by any sub-groups/activities that have particularly high activity levels or financial turnover. Trustees meet about once a month and their minutes can be found on this website.

The Trustees role is mainly to provide the legal and management framework within which activities can take place. Most decision making is done by sub-groups of people who take a lead interest in the different activities that Wellow Recreation supports – tennis, cricket, netball, boules etc. These groups come together in a Field Management Group – who ensure that all the different activities work together and the Trustees are informed about what they need to be doing.
