North Kessock Village Hall Needs New Board Members
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 (like at present), 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 to join.
We are hoping to have the AGM in Spring 2020 and, having lost two Board members already this year, other Board members have indicated that they will be standing down at the AGM. This will result in insufficient numbers to form a new Board after the AGM and the Hall would have nobody to run it. The AGM cannot be held until the Hall title has been transferred to the SCIO; there are currently some legal difficulties with this transfer which are taking time to resolve. The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is aware of and agreed to this delay. We will inform you of the date as soon as the transfer is complete.
You need to be a member of the North Kessock Village Hall (SCIO) charity to be elected to the Board (see below to join the charity). If you would like to become a member please complete an application form (from www.kessock-hall.net) and post it to the North Kessock Village Hall, Marine Drive, North Kessock IV1 3XS or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org attaching the completed form. Membership is open to any individual aged 16 or over who is resident in the North Kessock postal district. Board meetings are held at 7.00pm on the second Wednesday of each month, in the Meeting Room at the Hall.
