Odiham Sports Centre Trust - Charity Registration No: 301909
Odiham Parish Council is the Sole Trustee of the land known as Chamberlain Gardens. In a letter dated 13 June 1968 from a solicitor it states that the property was conveyed originally by Mr W.G Boyce and numerous other citizens of Odiham to be held by them on the Trusts declared in the Trust Deed (dated 1948). In 1957 the Parish Council applied to be prescribed as a Trust Corporation and the Ministry of Education made an order retiring the original Trustees and appointing the Parish Council in their place. Hence the Parish Council hold the property on Charitable Trust.
At Chamberlain Gardens you will find:
- A play area for younger children installed in October 2006.
