We are pleased to announce that our application to change the charity status of the Society to that of a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) was approved by the Charity Commission on the 27th September 2023. We have a new charity number and, of course, a new Constitution. The Society has had charity status since 2005 and the move to becoming a CIO was the result of a lengthy consultation process with our members and a vote at the 2023 AGM to make the application.
