   PCA changes Charitable Status

The PCA Trustees have agreed that on 1 April 2019 the PCA will change from being a Charitable Trust to being a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).  All assets and liabilities will be transferred to the new body.  The change follows the unanimous decision of the Special General Meeting of 27 June 2018.

Users, hirers and others dealing with the Centre will not notice any changes other than a new Charity Number (from 301916 to 1179587) and a new logo.

Once the accounts to 31 March are agreed the Charity Commission will be notified and the PCA Charitable Trust will be closed.  There will be a meeting to report the final year’s accounts in due course.

For the background see below and the "Change to CIO?" sidebar.


The AGM took place on Friday September 21st 2018 at 7.30pm n the Exhibition Room. The received and confirmed the results of the 27 June special general meeting. (See below)

Permission given to become a CIO

Following the unanimous decision taken at the special general meeting of 27 June application was made to the Charity Commission. (The proposed constitution  and  the presentation made by the trustees to the meeting may be viewed via the sidebar "Change to CIO”).

On 17 August we received notification from the Charity Commission that we could move from being an Independent Charitable Trust to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This will have little, if any, effect on our users but lets the PCA's administration work in a more business-like manner.  There is much to be done before the new CIO PCA is up and running. For example, there may be bank accounts to be set up and suppliers will need to be informed. This activity is expected to last until the start of our next Financial Year (April 2019).

Our next AGM  (21 September) is likely to be the final one as a charitable trust but there may need to be a
 meeting to wind things up around March/April next year.  

The last act for the old PCA will take place during the early life of the new PCA when the Land Trustees will pass the ownership of the site and building to the new organisation.

Display Screen in Foyer


Anyone can advertise on the display screen in the foyer. This is free to regular hirers of the centre since it was introduced after it became clear that we did not have enough notice board space for everyone. For anyone else there is a small charge to advertise here.

Be a Pal

We're inviting users and other interested parties to be "Pals of PCC". 
We do have an e mail  'PCA Users' address list of those of you with e mails , but we do not want to bombard you with information or unwanted e mails throughout the year, so we tend to only use it when communicating about important issues (AGM, price rises etc).

To provide more information throughout the year therefore, we have formed the 'Pals of PCC'. 

If you would like to go on this list, please reply and we will add you to the list. We do not intend to send out lots of e mails, but will keep you up to date with centre news and fund raising events as issues and events arise."

You can contact us also by email at or by phone on 01730 262081 (weekdays 9.30-12.30)

If we haven't got what you want you might find it at Petersfield's other voluntary centre, the  Winton House Centre
