On Friday I was in London for a regular meeting of my voluntary cultural sector alliance with the Central Council for Physical Recreation and the Heritage Alliance. Following the departure of Andrew Hanson from CCPR we welcomed the new Head of Policy, James MacDougall, to his first meeting with us. We spent some time comparing our draft responses to the Government consultation on changing the proportions of National Lottery funding given to the Lottery distributors. We also talked about Gift Aid and legacies and the 2011 European Year of Volunteering. I was interested to learn that CCPR has been asked, by the Sports Minister Hugh Robertson, to undertake a review of regulatory burdens affecting sports clubs: we agreed to identify particular areas of regulation that might be common to arts, sports and heritage groups.
