Challenges to face

The 2011 AGM of Stòras Uibhist parent company Sealladh na Beinne Mòire was held in Talla an Iochdar yesterday (Thursday).

Updates were given on the major projects highlighting some of the complexities faced by the community company over the past year.

Martin Matheson completed his term as a Director and Colin Morrison joined the Board.

Angus MacMillan, Chairman said: “This has been another year in which a huge amount of progress has been achieved on the development projects, improving estate management, supporting crofting, coastal protection, promoting tourism and lobbying for improved services on behalf of the community.

“However, the challenges faced along the way have made the work more complex than anticipated and this has delayed progress on occasions.”
