The Society's Objects
The Society’s activities are governed by its Articles of Association and in particular by its Objects, which form part of its Articles. The Society’s Objects are as follows:
(a) To advance the education of the public in the character and history of the geographic area comprising The Hundred Parishes.
(b) To promote for the benefit of the inhabitants of the geographic area comprising The Hundred Parishes and the surrounding areas the provision of information and facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation in the interests of social welfare and with the object of improving the quality of life of the said inhabitants.
(c) To promote for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment of The Hundred Parishes, especially its features of historic, architectural and wildlife interest.
The Society’s Articles of Association and Objects were originally agreed in June 2012 at a constitutional conference that was attended by representatives from 30 local authorities and other organisations. As agreed at the conference, the Society was subsequently registered as a company limited by guarantee, governed by those Articles of Association and Objects.
Following advice from the Charity Commission, objects (a) and (b) were modified by a special resolution of the Society in July 2014. The objects are now as stated above.
