Formation of Boarhills and Dunino Community Trust
A meeting was held in the Village Hall in June 2015 with a representative of the Development Trust Association to which all were invited. The meeting was advised to explore what types of projects the community might be interested in, before deciding what form of organisation should be set up.
A community wide consultation took place in December 2015 and a list of potential projects drawn up. A steering group was formed and at a meeting of Boarhills and Dunino Community Council in August 2016, a mandate was approved for the formation of a Trust.
The Trust came into being on 31 August 2017 when its Articles of Association were approved and it became registered by Companies House. BDCT is a Company Limited by Guarantee, company number SC575099.
The first General Meeting of the BDCT was held on 11 October 2017 in Boarhills Village Hall. The following were appointed as Directors of the Board of the Company: Lorna Drummond, John Gallon, Alan Cairns, Lynne Matthews, Louise Roger. Bobby Simpson was also appointed Director (Community Council representative), and Cllr John Docherty was co-opted as Director.
The following Board appointments have since been made:
Chair – Lorna Drummond, Vice Chair – John Gallon, Company Secretary and Treasurer – Alan Cairns, Secretary – Louise Roger.
