The Bottesford Institute

The Bottesford Institute was established by Duke of Rutland on the 08th August 1922, when he transferred the Belvoir Coffee House on Market Street to Trustees "as a club, reading room, library or institute for the use of all persons residing in the Parish of Bottesford".

In 1988, in conjunction with the Duke of Rutland and the Charity Commission it was decided that Bottesford Parish Council would be appointed as the new Trustees of The Bottesford Institute.

Under the terms of the Trust Deed dated 08th August 1922 as varied by scheme of 16th March 1988 as approved by the Charity Commission on 28th November 1989, the charitable objects changed so that the Charity's income would be applied "for public charitable purposes for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Parish of Bottesford".
