How the Current Trust was formed
When the old buildings of the former Malpas War Memorial Institute fell into disrepair, the land was sold to Newport District Council. The Larch Court Sheltered Housing complex was planned to be built on this site. The three Newport Councillors and the two Gwent county Councillors decided that something had to be done to safe-guard the money that Newport Council paid to the existing Trustees for the purchase of this site so that the citizens of Malpas would benefit from it.
The legal departments of Newport District Council and Gwent County Council assisted with the process. Mr David Porter acted for Newport and Mr Johan Valentine Williams for the County.
Charity Commission was contacted and an agreement was reached that
a scheme could be set up to benefit
the citizens of Malpas.
was a long and arduous journey, and hundreds of hours have been put
into making the trust a success. Everyone involved was
ensure that the new trust provided support for the current and
of Malpas and that the people of Malpas would continue to benefit
from the sacrifices that our predecessors made.
