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.

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.
