Catbrook Educational Trust promotes the education, including social and physical training, of persons who are under the age of 25 and are or have been resident in the catchment area of the former Catbrook School. It is hoped to re-launch the Trust and make some funding available in 2021. Three Trustees are looking to appoint a further three co-opted Trustees to form a board of six and are inviting expressions of interest from anyone who would be interested in joining the board to help with the running of the Trust to meet its aims and objectives.

Following the recent relaxation of Lockdown rules relating to Community Centres, The Trustees have reconsidered the position in respect of Catbrook Memorial Hall.
It is important that the decisions to re-open are not rushed and that all necessary preparations, training and measures are in place well in advance. Trustees have significant legal responsibilities to keep their community facility and its users safe.
Due to safeguarding requirements, Health and Safety rules, extensive and repetitive cleaning, social distancing and risk assessments compliance, The Trustees do
not consider that they can safely open the Hall and comply with these requirements
or the law in Wales.

The Trustees understand that this will be disappointing, but consider that it is
in the best interests of the community. This decision will be reviewed regularly
and updates will appear on this website as and when required.
