- MATTERS ARISING
- FINANCIAL UPDATE
3.1 Financial report
All directors had received the financial report prior to the meeting. The report was approved by all directors.
CS will meet with Tina Hartley of TGDDC to understand the long term projects and funding in order to create a 10 year forecast.
4.1 NEEDLES AND NATTERS – M007 £200
An application has been approved by email for £200 for refreshments and hall booking for the Needles & Natters group
4.2 PHASE 2 ACTIVE GARVE & DISTRICT
A request has been received from TGDDC to divert some of the grant funding from the Phase 2 Active Garve & District to Community Lunches and Youth Activities, as suggested at the Joint Community Group Working Meeting
4.2 ENERGY EFFICIENCY GRANT – ACHNASHEEN AMENITIES
LCT has received an email from Achnasheen Amenities regarding the possibility of applying for a grant for home energy efficiency improvements, namely rafter (roof) insulation. The group had the impression that LCT was unlikely to approve grants for this type of assistance for the community. During discussion it was agreed by the LCT Board that, as with the Community Support Grant and the Smoke alarm scheme, provided the scheme fulfilled the requirements as stipulated in the developer agreements and the requirements of OSCR, there was no perceived reason as to why LCT could not pay out such a grant. The LCT Board recommended that the scheme is made available to all those in the GDCC area who fit the criteria and was administered by the Garve & District Development Company.
5. JOINT COMMUNITY GROUP WORKING MEETING
A concern has been raised by GDCC that if they host the joint community group working meeting it would need to be a public meeting, under the rules governing the Community Council. CS has contacted Kenny Maclean (Chair GDCC) and agreed that LCT will host the meeting, thereby removing the requirement for the meeting to be a public meeting.
The Board of LCT would like for the next meeting to review the community support grant. CS will also contact the other organisations to ascertain what they wish to discuss.
6.1 COFFEE MORNINGS
CS will attend the coffee mornings at Garve and Achnasheen to represent LCT. The board agreed to purchase 2 floor standing banners.
5.2 PLATINUM JUBILEE COINS
The Platinum Jubilee coins have been ordered and will be presented to each child in the GDCC area. The coins are being paid from the Admin budget and not the grant budget.
5.3 GDCC MEETING
CS will attend the next GDCC meeting to represent LCT
5.4 DIRECTOR RECRUITMENT
LCT still requires 3 directors. CS will attend the coffee mornings to try to recruit
A suggestion has also been made that LCT alters its articles so that directors do not have to have a year off after retiring. CS will discuss with Alpin Stewart
5.5 ZOOM MEETINGS
Board Meetings will continue to be held via Zoom. The AGM will be held as a face to face meeting
The AGM will be held on Tuesday 15th November
DATE OF NEXT MEETING: Tuesday 20th September
