Dinas Powys Community Library becomes a Registered Charity

Last week, the Charity Commission announced: "We are satisfied that DINAS POWYS LIBRARY AND ACTIVITY CENTRE is a charity and it has been entered onto the Register of Charities with the Registered Charity Number 1169059."

The Community Library and Activity Centre will operate as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). It's details are no publicly available to view on the Charity Commission website within the next couple of days.

This means that the Community Library and Activity Centre is now an official entity, and it has now been able to open a bank account with the CAF Bank and move forward on other fronts. An official hand-over date should be announced shortly.

The Steering Committee of Dinas Powys Community Library and Activity Centre has stated to the Vale of Glamorgan Council that they wish the Library to be transferred to the DPL&AC  on Monday 31st October 2016.

A rota of volunteers has been drawn up, but more volunteers will be welcome to ensure longer opening hours.

If you would like to volunteer please see previous posts on this blog for an application form and further details.
