Hall is no more. The village's battle with the Charity Commission
which started in 2011 has now been investigated by the Parliamentary
Ombudsman twice. The first in 2016 resulted in the CC doing an internal review which admitted they got it wrong (CCREVIEW)
The second has resulted in a report (Ombuds REPORT). It is our view that this report ignores the implications of statements in the review in order to avoid awarding proper compensation but our appeal (APPEAL) has been dismissed.
All the indications are that the hall rightly belonged to the village and that it has been taken from us due to incompetence on the part of the Charity Commission and greed on the part of the Cornwall Federation of Women’s Institutes (CFWI).
CFWI have not expressed regret or apologised for depriving us of our hall or for destroying the legacy of generations of loyal WI ladies in Kelly Bray. More
