The Friends of Duxford Green Spaces(FODGS) was formed in 2018 to help protect and enhance the greens spaces of Duxford village,
Its object is to promote and support projects and provide facilities for the benefit of Duxford Residents for the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment [by promoting biological diversity] within the Parish of Duxford, but will initially concentrate on fundraising for the The Brewery Field Project
Membership is open to all who wish to join for a nominal fee of £10 joining fee, plus a £10 annual subscription. Family membership is also available. Members will be kept up to date on progress and will be consulted on any issues arising. We hope that many parishioners will support the project by joining the group, even if unable to give any time. All membership fees collected will go towards administration costs and towards moving the project forwards.
The FODGS constitution has been drawn up in line with that required for charities, should we wish at some time in the future to change status. By doing this, if the annual income is regularly greater than £5K, we can easily convert to charitable status at a later date.
