In view of a possible grant for such as advised by David Inglis at the last meeting he also spoke of the car park at the Golf Club at St Medan’ s with Cllr Hagmann confirming that any available funding must be applied for. She said that it is expected that 4 to 6 spaces may be allocated but with no facilities being provided, and Mr McMaster said that signs in regard to waste disposal had already been erected.
  • Kilgallioch Community Benefit Fund – i) Village Notice Board – Dr Crowther said that she did not feel the costing of £408 as stated in the minutes of the 27th April to be a realistic figure as she had already looked at some options which had been at a much higher cost. She agreed to investigate this further and was advised to look at a company by the name of ‘JACSUK ‘who specialise in making these using recycled materials. ii) Mr Gray to apply for funding on behalf of Mochrum Carpet Bowling Club.

He confirmed that Mr McElrea and Mrs Mellor had now been added as signatories on the accounts and that Mr Smellie had been removed.

 

  1. Correspondence – Mrs Mellor confirmed receipt of an e- mail received in regard to £60,000 worth of funding for youth groups which she was advised to forward to any such groups as well as to the school and to the Community Development Trust.

The possibility of improving the play area in Port William was muted and Cllr Hagmann suggested that a sub committee be formed to take this forward.

  1. Chairman’s Report. – Mr Smellie’s report was read by the Chairman and said how it was pleasing that all ten meetings of 2021/22 had been held physically in the Maxwell Hall, although with little representation from elected members, or the police who delivered their reports electronically. Jacqueline Crowther was welcomed as a co-opted member during the year and at the end of the year three future resignations were notified, namely Jen Hendry and Peter and Sheila Smellie, which resulted in an election for four vacant positions. Mr Smellie expressed his thanks to the Treasurer for his work with the numbers, to the secretary for the minutes and backroom activities and to all members of the Community Council for their support throughout his tenure. He thanked Carscreugh Renewable Energy Park Ltd for their continued support which had enabled grants to be made to local organisations- Maxwell Hall; SWI; Toddlers; Youth Group and Play Group; an additional picnic bench had been purchased for the King’s Green play area; and with further funds due for the current year, he encouraged local voluntary organisations to apply for those monies. In January 2022 a further Community Benefit funding of £2000 was received from Kilgallioch Community Benefit fund and grants from this had been awarded to MADAG and to the Community Association. A Discretionary Grant was received from D & G Council which underpins the fixed costs such as hall hire; insurances and website and with the Community Council acting as a conduit for other Council funds, money was received from the Hardship Fund which was passed onto the Community Association to allocate, for which Mr Smellie thanked the Community Association for their efforts in that area and generally around the village with the Christmas Lights and the Carnival Week which will be returning this year for its 70th anniversary celebrations. He said how the successes of the year were the completion of the fisherman’s compound in the harbour, and the subsequent tidy up operation which cleared unwanted kit from the harbour; a meeting with the harbour master outlining plans for the area; and the fixing of a number of lights in Port William and Monreith, with thanks recorded to Cllr Inglis for promoting letters of complaint in that respect to the right departments within the Council. Mr Smellie report concluded with his thanks to everyone who had assisted him personally, and the Community Council generally, over his past eight years of involvement, and he wished everyone success for the future.
  2. Financial Statement – Copies of the Income and Expenditure Account for the year ended 31st March 2022, having been previously circulated were proposed for adoption by Mrs B Mellor; seconded by Mr L Gray. Mr Ballantyne said howthe year started with an overall balance of £2,509.47. At the end of the financial year ,we had £2,414.10 in the bank account. This was made up of Administration Fund £ 557.03; Village Improvement fund £ 857.07; and Kilgallioch Community Benefit fund of £1,000.00. An overall loss of £ 95.37 was recorded but Mr Ballantyne explained that this had been due to an administrative error. There had also been a payment of £450.00 made in error which has been refunded; posted to the administration account and will appear in next years’ accounts. He expressed thanks to D & G Council for the Hardship fund of £986.60 which was passed to Port William Community Association with £203.26 then refunded back to the Council. He thanked Carscreugh Wind Farm for their Community Benefit Fund of £ 2,689.60 and with £ 805.70 carried over from previous years £3,495.30 was paid out to local organisations. He expressed thanks to Kilgallioch for their payment of £2000 from the Community Benefit fund; to D & G Council for their continued Discretionary Grant of £ 493.30; to all who donated to the Wishing Well which had raised funds of £102.60; to Port William Community Association for taking on the costs of the Christmas trees and electricity for all the lights which have expanded greatly this year and concluded his report with grateful thanks to Mrs Audrey Kevan for having checked the accounts.

6.Nominations for other positions

  • Press Secretary – the necessary of such was discussed and agreed that the only requirement was for someone to take on responsibility for the article in the Parish magazine, which Mrs Gray agreed to do if she was to continue as Acting Minute Secretary otherwise Mr Leom Gray would take on the role.

NOTICE OF CASUAL VACANCY ELECTION

NOTICE OF CASUAL VACANCY ELECTION OF COMMUNITY COUNCILLORS PORT WILLIAM COMMUNITY COUNCIL

Elections are to be held for the return of 4 Community Councillors who will join the above-named Community Council from 8am on the day after the proposed day of Poll.

Nomination papers may be obtained from the Returning Officer at the contact details below. Nomination papers, duly completed and signed, must be delivered by email at the undernoted email address no later than 5pm on Tuesday 3 May 2022.

Candidates for election may withdraw their nomination but only if they advise their withdrawal in writing to the Returning Officer no later than 5pm on the closing date for nominations.

A ballot box election will be held on Tuesday 24 May 2022 if more than 4 persons remain validly nominated after the period for nominations has expired. Those entitled to stand for election, or to propose a nomination, are those whose names appear in the appropriate Electoral Registers as being eligible to vote in local government elections on the date of the Community Council election.

The Scottish Elections (Reduction in Voting Age) Bill introduced in Spring 2016 allows for 16 year olds to vote at Local Government and Scottish Parliament and they will therefore be included in the electoral register for those elections. Consequently, as Community Council elections are held on the Local Government franchise this new ruling will now apply to all future Community Council elections.

The public should note that in the event of a poll, voting at this election will be confined to those members of the electorate who attend the poll in person. There will be no postal or proxy voting.

If less than 4 persons remain validly nominated, then such persons will be declared to be duly elected unopposed as at 8am on Wednesday 25 May 2022 and that this will be confirmed at a scheduled meeting of the Community Council to be on Wednesday 25 May 2022 at 7.30pm in Maxwell Hall, Port William.

  3. Thanks to Jen for posting on Facebook the advertisement relating to the need for new community councillors.
  4. Jacqueline has been busy on behalf of the Community Council, liaising with the Harbourmaster and thanking him for his work in clearing the rubbish from the harbour and representing the council in meetings with D & G. All public toilets are now open from 0700 to 2000, additional rubbish bins have been provided at Second Sands, Craignarget and St. Medans which will be emptied daily during the tourist season and chemical waste disposal facilities have been provided at New England Bay, Stairhaven and Isle of Whithorn.  Jacqueline is willing to represent Port William in the Federation of Community Councils (as is Douglas) and also write the article for the Crosslink magazine.  Thank  you very much, Jacqueline.  She has also been investigating notice boards, which will be discussed at a later meeting as Paul and Jen also have input.
