URRAS Oighreachd Ghabh­sainn cel­e­brated 10 years of com­mu­nity own­er­ship of Gal­son Es­tate on Thurs­day Jan­uary 12.

A pro­gramme of events for the com­mu­nity will run through­out the year ahead to mark this ma­jor achieve­ment.

Agnes Ren­nie, chair of Urras Oighreachd Ghabh­sainn, said: ‘It gives me great plea­sure to kick-start this year of cel­e­bra­tion and in­vite our com­mu­nity to join with the di­rec­tors and staff in the var­i­ous planned events. It’s a time for re­flect­ing on all that has been achieved and also to look for­ward to what we hope the fu­ture will bring.

‘Af­ter 10 years, we are uniquely placed to shape the kind of com­mu­nity we as­pire to see in the fu­ture, with a new and ex­pand­ing in­vest­ment fund, a re­freshed vi­sion and a co­he­sive strate­gic plan.

‘I need to thank fel­low di­rec­tors, past and present, our staff over the years and many oth­ers who have played im­por­tant roles in sup­port­ing the Urras.

‘Progress in the years ahead will be de­pen­dent on part­ner­ship and col­lab­o­ra­tion and I look for­ward to mak­ing the most of shared am­bi­tions and mu­tual in­ter­ests both within and out­with the Es­tate as we move for­ward.’
