Old Dean Community Group

Old Dean Community Group 2018 or ODCoG is a registered charity with charity number 1181021.

There is a long legal version of what we are about in our constitution.  The constitution provides the formal legal basis for us to be a charity and is in the format required by the Charity Commission.  It defines how we will meet our legal obligations as a charity.

However, a simpler, friendlier version of our objectives, is that we aim to:

  • Provide recreation and leisure time occupation for anybody in Old Dean who is for some reason disadvantaged
  • Improve things in Old Dean
  • Help build skills and capabilities in the Old Dean community.

The Old Dean Community Group is run by a Management Committee which meets every two months at St Martin’s on the second Tuesday of odd numbered months at 5:15 pm.  Anyone in Old Dean can come along and listen.

There are currently five Trustees who carry the legal responsibility for what ODCoG does and how it is run.  They are:

  • Rodney Bates – Chairman
  • Trefor Hogg – Secretary
  • Roger Webb – Treasurer
  • Shaun Garrett
  • Tara Gibbons
