Bedfield Town Estate Fund Distribution
Part of the remit of the BTE is to consider the distribution of the funds. The original Trust Deed was set up to enable maintenance and repair of the church, therefore a large proportion of the income is used for that purpose. The remaining amount is distributed for education, those in need and the general benefit of the residents of Bedfield.
