Significant Achievements of Trust

Richard Dumbreck Singleton Trust Crest Read about some of the achievements of the trustesss of the Richard Dumbreck's Singleton Trust.

Dumbreck Court

In 2008, the Trust undertook and completed a conversion of redundant brick buildings at Worsick's Farm to create six new residential properties. The development was named Dumbreck Court in recognition of Richard Dumbreck.

Singleton School

Singleton School is at the heart of our community and the Trust has generously supported it by providing funding towards the New School Hall, the School's heating system, a new roof and the outdoor classroom.

Trust Properties

In 2014 a programme to replace windows and doors and roofs of the cottages was started and this will continue throughout 2015. In 2014/2015, both No. 1 Station Rd and No.8 Station Rd were completely refurbished and let to new tenants.

Permissive Footpaths in Singleton Park

In 2015, the Trust has secured funding from the Forestry Commission and the Lancashire Environmental Fund and has built wheelchair friendly, permissive footpaths in Singleton Park. This has opened up Singleton Park and some adjoining farmland so that residents and visitors can enjoy the local heritage and this attractive natural resource.

Within 2014 the Trust have supported the local community in the following ways:

  • Organising with the Parish Council for a Community Service group to tidy up around the village including repairing the lane behind cottages on Church Road
  • Donation of £9,429.49 to Singleton Village Hall re solar panels
