Full com­ple­ment of mem­bers on board

The Oban Times - - Districts -

AT ITS re­cent an­nual gen­eral meet­ing, Colon­say Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Com­pany (CCDC) saw its board of man­age­ment strength­ened by the ad­di­tion of three younger mem­bers and the co- op­tion of an ex­pe­ri­enced hand.

Coun­cil­lor Robin Cur­rie came from Is­lay to Colon­say for the meet­ing, join­ing an im­pres­sive turnout of more than 55 res­i­dents. For the first time in sev­eral years, there were more can­di­dates than there were places on the board. Ros Jewell, an artist and carer for the el­derly, Colm McNi­choll, a crofter and fencer, and Caro­line Sey­mour, also a crofter and school and shop­worker, were the three new can­di­dates. The re­sult of the elec­tion, with 42 mem­bers of CCDC com­plet­ing a re­turn, was as fol­lows, in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der: An­drew Abra­hams 29, Sue Dance 30, Alex Howard 19, Ros Jewell 36, Wil­lie Joll 30, Liam McNeill 31, Colm McNi­choll 36, Chris Nis­bet 18, Caro­line Sey­mour 31 and Scott Weather­stone 38.

At the first meet­ing of the new board, mem­bers were de­lighted to co- opt Dan­nie Onn onto the board.

The gen­eral re­sponse from is­landers to the elec­tion re­sult was that be­ing rep­re­sented by a com­mit­tee with its full com­ple­ment of mem­bers could only be pos­i­tive in re­gard to the de­vel­op­ment of Colon­say.
