Good gracious! Apparently the members didn’t decide on an S.G.M. at all – NOPE – that was ‘proposed by the board’ who subsequently ‘had legal advice’ from a hitherto unidentified ‘legal adviser’ who is apparently not the Trust’s regular solicitor!

This is a rather serious matter for the G.M.S.T. membership to contemplate. Will certain individuals be held personally responsible for damages in the fullness of time?
