Over 120 members of the public attended the meeting held on Monday 27 November, to hear Bruton School for Girls Trust trustees present their proposals for sale of BSG Trust land, and changes to the objects of the BSG Trust. There were too many people for the Community Hall, so the meeting decamped to St Mary’s Church.

In a lively and at times passionate meeting, many questions were asked and points made. The Trustees’ consultation closed on 4 December 2023. They will now consider the numerous responses they have received to their consultation, and decide what permissions they wish to ask of the Charity Commission.

The meeting was organised jointly by Bruton Town Council and Pitcombe Parish Council, but was not a formal meeting of either council. We wish to extend our thanks to St Mary’s for offering us use of the church, (as well as their excellent audio equipment).
