Chairman's Introduction

This Annual Report gives a summary of the Foundation's activities during the year to the 31st March 2020.

Royalty payments received each year from Mick George, the Foundation's tenants of the quarry, increases the assets of the Foundation. The income of the Foundation, which is distributed each year, is derived from returns on our investments.

The 10 Trustees are responsible for managing all of the Foundation's assets and for allocating this income for the benefit of the education of young people in the village between the ages of 11 and 25. They are always concerned to ensure that all young people who are fully resident in Snettisham and who have lived in the village for at least one year, and who qualify, should receive help from the Foundation.

Please contact our Administrator, or any of the Trustees, if you know of anyone who may qualify, but who has not yet applied. Their names and addresses are given in this report.
