Those of us who applied for membership of The Applecross Trust have now received a letter from the Trust letting us know that “the Trust respectfully refuses your application for membership“.
And here is a memo which accompanies it and which was sent to all residents of Applecross on or around 20 October 2012.
The memo is worth a close read. It should also be noted that the document fails to describe fully the details of the Applecross Trust and its history. In particular, the statement at the foot of page 1 that “These members of the public remain the sole beneficiaries of the Trust” is misleading as the Trust referred to no longer owns the estate.
The bulk of the estate was transferred to the Trustees of Applecross Trust in 1985. In 1992, the “The Applecross Estate Trust” was established (both legal trusts). In March 2006 title to the estate was transferred to The Applecross Trust (a limited company incorporated 28 December 2005) where it remains today.
