At a meeting of Moray Council today, 28th June, we were delighted to be present for their decision that our current home, the former Abbeylands School in Kinloss should be handed across to Morayvia as part of the Community Asset Transfer process.
Present at the meeting this afternoon were some of Morayvia’s directors, Stan Barber, Mark Mair, Margaret Yates, Bob Pountney and Lynne Herbert. They saw the culmination of a fantastic team effort, having put together the proposal with assistance from HIE, Sylvia Jamieson from the Community Support Team, and others.
Speaking after the decision, the Lord Leutenant of Moray, Grenville Johnson commented, “This is another fantastic milestone for Morayvia, and really gives another building block to push on with their exciting plans”.
Mark Mair, Morayvia Chairman said “This really gives a positive future for Morayvia and Moray, as there is so much we want to achieve as an organisation, and having our current home secured for our use means we can start to progress our plans to develop the centre. All of the time and effort put into this process has been worth it, from when our CEO, Stan Barber started things off, to now when we have completed the process and the outcome has been a positive one.”
Work can now start to expand the and improve the facilities at the centre, as a number of activities could not start without knowing the future of the property. Keep an eye out for updates as we put our plans into flight!
