MEMBER’S UPDATE, 2nd November 2016.


Dear Member,


HEADLINES FROM ANNUAL MEMBERS MEETING ON 26/10/16.


25 members attended.


Accounts and Trustees report for Charity Regulator approved.


Jo. Ferrier was re-appointed as a trustee to serve for 5 years.


Annual Subscription will remain at £5 per member.


The Chairman confirmed receipt of £8700 funding support for the Magus Woodland project from St.Andrews Community Trust. Tony Wilson, our woodland consultant, outlined the initial programme for the woodland restoration. Peter Kushner was appointed Convenor of the Woodland Group to oversee the management of the Magus Woodland. Anyone interested in voluntary work in the woodland should contact Peter at peter_kushner@hotmail.com , or at the number below.

 

The members decided not to pursue the provision of an electric power point at the village green.


The legal process to take over the running of the Village Green has commenced.


The members decided to support a move to purchase the redundant phone box in Sunnyside for £1.  Mrs.Lada Wilson, Pettycruick, has proposed a project to create a mini art gallery, if the purchase is agreed by BT and Fife Council.


Liz. Bilson, Brenda Lawrie, Ann Mudie and Merce Torres are preparing a planting programme for the displays , and would welcome any assistance with their project. They are also to investigate the possibility of villagers adopting and creating their own display in the planters. The cart at the old smiddy will have to be dismantled during the winter, to be assessed for possible repairs.


The Apple Day had been a success, with lots of apple juice made and over £100 worth of jam and chutney from garden produce sold. There is a short waiting list for allotments at the Community Garden. Any current allotment holder who wishes to relinquish their plot should advise the Chairman as soon as possible. Work to improve the rabbit and pigeon proofing at the garden will be completed during the winter.


The Chairman thanked the trustees and members for their hard work throughout the year and highlighted the success of the Beechgrove Garden visit to the village.


Many thanks for your continuing support and interest.
