Merger up-date

Dear Members


Many of you will know of our ambition to merge with Cambridge CVS, and during the past 18 months we have undertaken a genuine exploration of the risks and benefits of a merger for ourselves and our members. 


Whilst on the surface a merger between Hunts Forum and Cambridge CVS seemed a sensible option, the due diligence process highlighted issues that we have been unable to resolve. 


At a trustee meeting on 16th July a decision was reluctantly made not to proceed. However  Hunts Forum and Cambridge CVS will continue to work collaboratively.


Everyone has worked really hard and I would like to extend my thanks to staff, trustees and our external advisor for all their support.


Kind regards


Julie Farrow

Chief Executive
