North Kessock Village Hall (SCIO)
North Kessock Village Hall is now a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).
The organisation’s purposes are:
To manage the North Kessock Village Hall for the benefit of all the residents of North Kessock postal district, including use for meetings, events, lectures and classes, and for other forms of education, training, recreation and leisure time activity, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the communityand to organise and
To promote any other community-based activity which the Members shall consider to improve the conditions of life for the community and/or promote community participation.
The Board of the North Kessock Village Hall (SCIO) is basically a small group of members, whose main purpose is to maintain and run the village hall. It consists of a group of charity trustees, with a Chair, a Vice Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer, and Booking Secretaries along with a varying number of ordinary Board Members.
Over the years, the numbers have varied greatly. At times, the Board has been large enough and robust enough to manage a range of activities from whist drives to concerts, dances and gala weeks. At other times, the Board has been very small, and has struggled to maintain the fabric of the hall. Many people in the village have, over the years, done their "stint" on the Board, but there is always a great need for extra people.
At present, the Board would love to hear from anyone who would like to help. It is all voluntary, and the only commitment you need to make is to do only as much as you wish. The kind of people who are needed are - old people, young people, people who have lived here forever, people who have just arrived in the village, professional people, trades people, retired people, people with ideas ..... . Everyone is more than welcome.
If you feel you would like to help, please contact any Board member.
