At the AGM, members agreed that more time was needed to discuss the proposed changes to the articles of association. A separate EGM will therefore be called for this.
The articles of association needed to be changed in order to ensure they fitted with charity legislation that had been put in place since the Memorandum and Articles of association were first adopted. It was also proposed to include additional charitable goals, to make sure that the trust could support all the charitable activity that was required in Westray. The proposed changes had been checked by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator and were acceptable to them, but needed member approval.
