At the most recent meeting of the Friends Working Group on Saturday 7th July, a decision was taken to adopt the "Model rules for an incorporated association" with the following statement of purpose and objectives:
Purpose: “The full restoration and ongoing stewardship of the Cyril Young Memorial Chapel as both a war memorial and sanctuary.”
- The restoration of the Chapel in accordance with the original plans and design so it functions as both a war memorial and a sanctuary for quiet contemplation;
- The ongoing stewardship of the Chapel in partnership with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and other government agencies;
- Collaboration with the Shoreham Community Association (SCA), the YMCA and other interested parties towards our purpose;
- To preserve and honour the significant nature of the site as a community resource for the people of Shoreham.
All friends need to sign up as members in order to vote for the incorporation.
