A constitution is basically a document that outlines the name of the group, how many members there will be (main board of trustees) the joint aims of the group, joining procedures, how many times the group will meet etc. It sounds very formal but as the group grows it will help when decisions need to be made. It also gives the group a certain amount of credibility when approaching councils etc. The constitution will need to be signed by the Chairman and at least 2 other members.
