Beccles Townlands Charity - Trustees

Under the terms of the Charity’s Constitution there is provision for a maximum of thirteen Trustees (also known as Feoffees) and a minimum of eight. At the present time there are eleven Trustees. In 1994, on our 450th anniversary we appointed our first lady Feoffee, and now we have three.

When a vacancy needs to be filled names are suggested, generally from established Beccles families, and considered by the current Trustees The person(s) selected is/are then invited to join.

The Collector (Chairman) is appointed at the December Annual General Meeting, and holds office for twelve months. Trustees hold the post of Collector in alphabetical turn. The Collector allots duties relevant to the Charity’s activities to all his/her fellow Trustees. The present Collector is Mr M Jermey.
