East Nairnshire Community Organisation


Registered as Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation

ENCOMM IS HERE ! June 2020 East Nairnshire Community Organisation (SCIO) - ENCOMM Dear Resident As many of you will be aware, ENCOMM, as it is known, was established as a Charitable Organisation in November 2019. Its purpose was to negotiate and accept funds from, the owners of the Tom nan Clach Wind Farm and manage these funds for the benefit of East Nairnshire residents. The Board of Trustees has been working hard to ensure full compliance of its statutory obligations whilst ensuring that the community (all households residing in the Nairnshire East Community Council area) get maximum benefit. We are delighted to be able to inform you that ENCOMM has accepted a single lump sum of £340,000 from Nanclach Ltd. The payment is to be made in two tranches of £170,000, the first of which has been made, with the second due by August 1st. On behalf of the Community the Trustees acknowledge this voluntary arrangement. So what’s next? Our plans for an Open Day have obviously been badly affected by Covid 19. However, our website is now accessible at www.encomm.org giving much more information including how to apply for grants for local projects. We hope you will support the organisation by taking up membership which is free to all East Nairnshire residents aged 16 and over. A form and details are on the website. To ensure we maintain an accurate membership list and conform to the data holding regulations we would ask that everyone submits their details even if you have already been receiving our newsletters. Should you or anyone you know be unable to access our website please contact encommtrustees@gmail.com or phone 07887 857310. We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible at our first AGM due by November but in the meantime we would be very keen to hear from anyone wishing to join us as a Trustee. We are able to co- opt until the AGM and then we all stand for re-election. No formal qualifications required just bags of enthusiasm and a sense of humour. Please contact encommtrustees@gmail.com or phone 07887 857310 for further information.
