Chaigley Manor Trust

Hi. I'm a new kid on the block and as a past chairman of Chaigley Manor I am wondering if anyone has heard anything about the Trusts activities recently.
As you will know the Manor was sold for a considerable sum of money in November 2001 and a new Trust formed with the changed objectives of helping the young people of Hyndburn. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has heard of activities - or benefited from the charity recently.

I have heard of it but never known where it was or what it did. And must admit this is the first time i have heard it mentioned in years. Good luck finding out though.

How did they choose which kids got to go? We never had much when I was a kid but I never got to go.

Don't really know Willow, will ask my mum. I seem to recall her filling forms out but that is a vague memory so need to get it confirmed.

nits , rickets, and impitago (that thing where they put the blue stuff on you )

think most places took 2d (old money) out of your weekly pay packet, and if you asked about it you were told you were a miserable sod

note to original poster , if you click on the search button you will find links to other threads about the Chaigley Manor trust , one of which mentions a recent AGM and the monies
