Carlton Charity Lands

Carlton Charity Land, 2010

Gifts of land were made by deed for the use of the inhabitants of Carlton by Simon Geffrey in 1317, by Thomas Tymson in 1431 and by John Hoore in 1481.

In 1786 the land was vested in the Churchwardens and Overseers of the Poor and produced eight pounds two shillings per annum. In 1912, following the creation of Parish Councils and the transfer of the powers of the Vestry to them, a Charity Commission Scheme transferred the management of the charity to six Trustees - Four Representative Trustees appointed by Carlton Parish Council for three years, and two Cooptative Trustees appointed by the Trustees for five years.

The income from the land is used to award grants of up to 200 pounds to young people aged between 14 and 23 who either live in Carlton or are temporarily away from home in Carlton. The grants are to assist with apprenticeships, buying books, equipment, travel costs, fees and other items in pursuance of educational, sporting or career goals and establishing a business.

The Charity is registered with the Charity Commission under number 228622.

The current Representative Trustees are Ian Sarson (Secretary), Chris Brockhurst, Graham Jackson, and Andrew Tee. The current Cooptative Trustees are Hazel Davenport (Chairman) and Franco Onesti.

Carlton Defibrillator Group

The Carlton Defibrillator Group is completely independent from Carlton Parish Council. The Carlton Defibrillator Group provided and maintains the Community Defibrillator, housed in the information kiosk outside the church, organises volunteers prepared to attend in case of suspected cardiac arrest, and provides information and training on CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and first aid.

If someone appears to have suffered a cardiac arrest -

1. Dial 999. The ambulance service will give you the code to access the Community Defibrillator.

2. To contact local volunteers dial 05603-680-268 and give your name, address and telephone number. A volunteer can bring the defibrillator to you and try to help with resuscitation. The CDG tries to ensure that someone is always available, but this cannot be guaranteed.
