How to make an organisation like foam

Over the last six months I've been taking a crash course in company formation, treating it like any other investigation into a strange and esoteric technology. Last year I registered FoAM Kernow as a UK non profit organisation in the mould of FoAM Brussels. Starting off with absolutely no knowledge at all (but with a lot of help from FoAM's wider friends and relations) I found a lot of confusing fragments of information online so I thought I'd document the process here as much as I can. It's important to state that I'm not a lawyer or professional in these matters at all, so no substitute for proper legal advice - and any corrections would be most welcome.

Fo[am]tones party

Gypsy pedlars of coloured pills, they grin angelically while pushing their strange wares. Manufactured in underground kitchens beneath the labyrinthine corridors of the Beursschouwburg, where chymists have long been working to separate the green, red, yellow and pale white powders, the mode of dispensation is as important as the substance. An exacting artform, the visitor must first be diagnosed according to mood; thereupon the appropriate pill is indicated. The capsule is to be broken open and the powder inside tossed into the mouth. Effects may or may not be instantaneous or even perceptible; there is no recourse to antidotes.
