In the interest of clarity – here are the new Cranleigh Health Trust’s future charitable aims.

AN UPDATE on Changing the name – so what’s the game?

We understand from some of our followers that it was difficult to decipher the new Objects of the newly named – Cranleigh Health Trust – so here they are in larger print – so everyone can read them clearly, even if you cannot clearly understand them.

The Charity’s Objects are as follows: 

THE CHARITY’S OBJECTS ARE FOR THE RELIEF OF SICKNESS AND FOR THE PROTECTION AND PRESERVATION (No word – OF  – here) PUBLIC HEALTH IN CRANLEIGH, SURREY AND THE SURROUNDING AREA WITHIN THE AREA COVERED BY THE WAVERLEY PRIMARY CARE GROUP AND IN SUCH OTHER AREAS AS THE TRUSTEES THINK FIT IN PARTICULAR BY PROVIDING OR ASSISTING IN THE PROVISION (THROUGH THE PURCHASING,  LEASING, RUNNING, MAINTAINING OR OTHER INVOLVEMENT) OF A HOSPITAL THERETO IN CRANLEIGH AS A LOCAL HOSPITAL, NURSING HOME, OLD PEOPLE’S HOME, HEALTH CARE AND CLINIC OF ALL KINDS FOR THE PROVISION OF IN PATIENT OR OUT PATIENT, MEDICAL, SOCIAL, DOMESTIC AND OTHER FACILITIES AND EQUIPPING FOR THE RECUPERATION, CARE, ATTENTION, ENTERTAINMENT AND WELLBEING OF THE RESIDENTS OR PATIENTS THEREIN.

There you have it, boys and girls. Hopefully, you will find the above more legible this time.HOWEVER, THERE IS NO MENTION OF THE KITCHEN SINK?

 It is also interesting to note:

Changing the name – so what’s the game?

As they say in a marriage – ‘Change the name but not the letters – you change for worse and not for better.”

After 20 years has the Cranleigh Charity, Cranleigh Village Hospital Trust (CVHT), given up or is it proposing to battle on regardless of public opinion? The residents, including many donors, have written to the Waverley Web saying they are completely baffled.

They are asking:

WHY has CVHT announced – just days after its planning application was refused for a Care Home + community beds  – a name change?  Does it seriously think it’s going to be a game-changer?  If so, they’re doomed to disappointment!

HAS NOW BECOME

We very much doubt the people of Cranleigh and the Eastern Villages care about the so-called charity’s objectives any longer simply because they know it’s no longer a charity but a private enterprise.  

What they do care about is the fact that they’ve been robbed!  And in broad daylight!  Robbed of Circa £1.5/7m.
Until the Trustees of CVHT fess-up, admit to their chicanery and offer to reimburse those who supported their original objective – a NEW COTTAGE HOSPITAL – not a PRIVATELY OWNED NURSING HOME or any of the above named in its latest objectives, the Villagers – v – Trustees divide will continue.  
Rather like Momentum, the Trustees have built themselves an echo chamber and moved into it.  But what they need to remember is that there are more villagers than them and that doesn’t bode well for their welcome should they ever succeed in getting their next miserable, tainted project off the ground.  Do the residents of Cranleigh and the Eastern Villages want this self-serving project to succeed in the teeth of local opposition?  The answer is short and to the point: NO!  Perhaps there should be a vote on it? And, perhaps villagers should be putting themselves forward as future Trustees?

 Note the new Charitable Objects cater to the new Martini generation –  anyone anytime, anywhere! Provided the Trust can hang on to former parish land, and whatever public money is left in its coffers?

No wonder Cranleigh Parish Council, which handed over the proposed site in a land-swap, has set aside £3,000 of its limited funds to seek legal advice? 

Power to the people of the eastern villages as they joined Waverley Planners to give a controversial Care Home development the order of the boot.

  1. So it’s been quite clearly spelt out here that our money is really going to help towards provide the whole of Surrey’s health needs. I notice the word priority has been omitted where Cranleigh has been mentioned.
    I think the time has now come for this Health Trust to return any money left over from the old charity, to Cranleigh’s very own Village Hospital via the League of friends and return the swapped land back to the Cranfold villagers.

  2. Sounds like a good solution to Cranleigh and the eastern villages problems with this issue.

    Perhaps it should be conveyed to the new Cranleigh Health Trust, that the village has lost confidence in its ability to deliver what it said on the tin?
