* Note about the Pavilion Loan


The Exuberant Trust received a charitable donation of £10,000 in 2008, on the condition that it was then used as a loan to the Pavilion Trust Fund towards the cost of the construction of the Pavilion at The Limes in Standlake.


One of the conditions of the loan, was that the Exuberant Trust could use the Pavilion, free of charge, for its charitable Music at The Limes events. The Pavilion is directly beneficial to the Exuberant Trust as it provides a larger audience space for concerts than the formerly used Music Room at The Limes.


In the event of any future disposal of the Pavilion, the Exuberant Trust will be entitled to either a fixed sum, or some proportion of the proceeds.
