In the months since the new Colonsay Community Development Company Board were elected, the main focus has been on ‘getting the house in order’. The Board has worked not only to get to grips with the responsibilities of running the CCDC but also to do a bit of damage control from the admittedly tumultuous handover period. This could not have been successful without the experience and commitment of CCDC’s Business Consultant, Hazel Smith, employed to work with the Board on governance, finance and general community development. In June CCDC employed Caitlin as a Development Assistant to support the board and to continue the work of Local Development Officer, Hannah. CCDC regrettably reports that Hannah will not be returning to her post as LDO after her maternity leave finishes in March.

The main projects that the Board have been working on in the last few months have been the Croft and Housing projects which are progressing steadily with great support from community volunteers. Smaller projects have included the successful Sports Day and Gaelic weekend and a number of funding applications and new ideas are in the works for the coming months.

If anyone wishes to offer support or raise an issue with the Board please contact Caitlin on her email address:
