Agreed - if its a constituent group then it is the responsibility of the main charity board but that's only possible if communication works. If the 4709 group have gone off under the radar and done this without reference back to the main board (and the GWS statement at least hints they were in the dark) its in the territory of dealing with the aftermath and realising that you need to tighten controls. In any form of management you try and put the right processes in place and the right people in positions but inevitably its only when they do something you never expected that you realise you were wrong. That said if 7027 has been bought privately, then there's not a lot GWS can do about that. They may now want to have a say as to whether 7027's boiler is used in the way suggested but it doesn't necessarily get 7027 back in line for a restoration as a Castle.
