East Lochaber Laggan Community Trust

A good crowd attends our EGM

Approaching 130 from Laggan to Kinlochleven to Inveraray attended our Extraordinary General Meeting on 25th April in Fort William which allowed the formality of appointing the directors nominated by the membership. The meeting also heard a report from the board on activities over the past year. A full AGM will be held around October.

Following the EGM we were privileged to hear from Faye MacLeod on “Why Community Ownership?”

Faye is a partner with Campbell Stewart MacLennan & Co in Portree and Benbecula, who carried out the Financial Analysis on the Rio Tinto Aluminium Estates for the Trust last year. She has much experience of working with community landowners in the Islands and is highly regarded across the sector.

Part of Faye’s talk included the recently-launched video from Stòras Uibhist, celebrating their achievements over the first 10 years of their ownership.

All inspirational and a pleasant evening of fellowship!
