DCA - An era ends.


Funds to be dispersed

The DCA 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 secretary@doxeyca.org.uk giving the following information:

  • Your organisation’s name

  • The aims of your organisation

  • Where you are based

  • The project or proposal that needs some funding

  • The amount needed

  • How this would benefit Doxey residents.

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