Towngate Estate

The Towngate Estate is the oldest charitable trust in Threlkeld, dating from 1744 in its present form. Income is from four fields and from invested money.

The Trustees are appointed by the Parish Council and the Church with four co-optative trustees with the Rector as Chairman.  This year the Church appointed Andy Judge as Trustee in place of Roger Stevens who had retired after many years service.

The income for 2010 was slightly up on 2009.  It was distributed one third each to the School and the Church (as required by the deed) and the remaining third (£949) to:

Threlkeld Senior Citizens’ Committee             £350

Threlkeld First Responders                             £300

Threlkeld Children’s Outing Committee          £299
