DCA - An era ends.
Funds to be dispersed
Trustees have confirmed the decision of the 13th January to disband the Association. The following statement was issued.
It is with the deepest
regret and sadness that the members of the Doxey Community
Association have voted to bring the Association to an end. In the 20
years that the Association has been in existence, it has achieved a
great deal. Some of the many events for which the DCA has been
responsible are: pantomimes, collaboration on a theatre production
with the Mikron Theatre Company that later went on a national tour
(Village Voices), organising play afternoons, establishing the Monday
Coffee Morning, holding Clear Out Days and working with other
organisations within Doxey for
various Doxey Days and a Jubilee celebration, numerous Plant &
Produce Sales and the Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party.
Sadly in recent years the support at
meetings and events has dwindled dramatically. We reached the
point where everything was on the shoulders of approximately 6 people,
who found it increasingly difficult to maintain momentum, and
to carry on the work of the DCA with the vigour needed.
The DCA trustees must now consider how the
association’s assets are to be dispersed among the charitable
organisations working within Doxey or for the benefit of some of
Doxey’s residents. We have a small amount of money that we would
like to give to one or more organisations.
If your organisation is a charitable one,
working within Doxey or for the benefit of some of Doxey’s
residents and you have a project or proposal that you need some
funding for, please contact the DCA Secretary at
giving the following information:

Please send the
relevant details to the secretary using the e-mail address as above
by close of day February 29th.
