CALLING ALL MOY RESIDENTS TO A MEETING ABOUT COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUNDING FROM THE MOY WINDFARMMONDAY 10 AUGUST 2015 at 7.30pm in the STRATHDEARN HALL
For the past two year Eneco has worked closely with both community councils to discuss the ‘development’ of the ‘Moy Community Benefit Company’ which will have both community councils represented on the decision making panel alongside representatives from the local communities.
At the Moy Wind Farm Community Benefit Working Group meeting on 24 February it was ‘ agreed to move the process forward (continuing with the Joint Company) given the work that has gone into the benefit model over the last two years”
In May 2015, Eneco received correspondence stating that there was a desire to split the community benefit fund and for the Strathnairn Community Benefit Company (set up by npower) to administer the Strathnairn portion of the fund. This would be a 21.5/78.5 split with Strathdearn receiving the larger share.
On 12 May Guy Madgwick and Zoisa Walton of Eneco met with Vivian Roden of Strathdearn Community Council and Isobel McQueer of Strathnairn Community Council, following which the following statement was issued by Guy Madgwick:
“We met with representatives from Strathdearn and Strathnairn today, 12 May. On discussions we have identified there is no winning solution for all and therefore given the situation Eneco reverts to the Moy community benefit model. This will be reviewed after a two year period. We would like to invite four representatives from Strathdearn and four from the Strathnairn area to continue to participate within the working group for the Moy community benefit model. As previously stated, we always wish to carry out what the community wants, however, as both community councils cannot agree on a model we now feel that we have to take that decision. Eneco would like to thank all those involved”
Strathdearn Primary School is co-ordinating the Annual Community Litter Pick once more and are looking for volunteers to take part on Saturday 23 May from 10 – 12noon.
We will meet at the Village Hall, all gloves, litter pickers, bags provided.
The more the merrier!
The final cup campaign of the season got underway on Friday evening with Tomatin Utd travelling to Cromdale to take on Grantown Utd. Both teams were under strength but still produced an entertaining match. Tomatin found themselves behind in the first minute for the second game running as Grantown opened the scoring through young Fraser Greenlees. As he managed to slip past Alan Bartlett and knock the ball in low past Garry Stuart.
It was second place against third tonight at Aviemore as RBL welcomed Tomatin to the 4G pitch.
The game got off to an explosive start with the home team scoring within the first minute. It came from a harmless through ball which Jamie Edwards was in control off but his weak back pass to young stand in keeper Duncan was woefully short allowing Rory McKinnon the easiest of chances to round the goalie and walk the ball into the net.
