Background

Background

Mr and Mrs J A Pye's Charitable Settlement was established in 1966. In its early years the Settlement's principal asset was a shareholding in the Pye building company. Although it no longer holds any shares in the company, the Trustees still feel that there is some interest in the areas in which it operated.
