Update on our AGM post
Many apologies as it seems that the word documents I linked to in the previous AGM post were not legible to all. I am reposting with the docuemnts as PDFs. Any problems in reading them then please get back to us.
A big thanks for all our supporters and members who came along to the Friends of Nevis (FoN) AGM on September 15th 2012. In summary we are not in bad shape – small but perfectly formed if you like.
We are succeeding in paying our way now our staff costs are no longer being supported by the Nevis Partnership. Our accounts are in order, the 2010/11 accounts were presented at the AGM. For the financial year 2011/12, a verbal update was given. Our largest costs are for the Co-ordinaotor and Path Supervisor – freelancers who enable us to put on the volunteer events FoN runs. FoN’s biggest sources of income are from the donations cairns on the tourist path up Ben Nevis and support from co-orporate supporters such as Macs Adventures, Torlinnhe Guest House, the Claichaig Inn and Grog and Gruel pub, amongst many – a big thanks to all.
We will continue to develop our range of volunteer activities, and look forward to doing this with the Nevis Partnership when they develop their Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership.
We are extremely grateful for all the continued support we recieve from both volunteers, our businesses supporters and the Scottish Community Fund. We would also like to thank SNH (from whom we recieve a grant), and the Nevis Partnership who support us with office space.
