SCA FORMAL ACCOUNTS AND REPORT 2013

============================================================

TREASURER’S REPORT by Hugh Piggott

 

SCA finances are in good shape, but fundraising activities did not quite cover outgoings over the last twelve months.  It is useful to hold some money in the bank to pay for road work pending reimbursement by the Council.

The balance of money held is as follows:

December 2011

August 2012

August

2013

Undesignated funds

£1,009

£2,089

£1,597

Designated Highland Council “road money”

£1,081

£240

-£172

Total in bank account and cash held

£2,090

£2,329

£1,425

 

ROAD WORKS

We have spent £3,512 of Council money on road work over the last 12 months, including backlog of funds, and a £3,000 budget for last financial year. (Also £172 of this year’s budget was accidentally overspent in March.  This can be recovered in our next invoice to the Council.)

Spending was halted in the Spring pending a new understanding with the Council, but we have recently heard that they will pay up to £3,000 again this financial year, if anyone actually wants to work on the road.  If the work is not done, then the money will not be paid.  It is also acceptable to the Council for SCA to add a charge for supervision of the work costing up to 10% of the total spent.

Not all email users have paid their subscriptions – there remains £90 over-due.

Accountant costs were high due to two years’ bills being paid within twelve months.

I am resigning as treasurer as I do not wish to attend meetings, but I am willing to help with the accounts if required.

All the best,

Hugh

Tapestry completed

Scoraig stitchers have at last completed their contribution to the
Scotland’s Tapestry project. Well done to all the stitchers: Aggie,
Alison, Anthea, Cathy, Djinni, Hugh, Jessie, Jill, Joanie, Kath, Nick,
Susan, Viveca and anyone else I’ve missed out. It’s been hundreds of
hours of stitching, it’s been sent back  to the organisers and returned
for more work to be done but at last we’re happy with it and we hope
they will be too. It’s going to be on display at the Scottish
Parliament through most of September, where it will join 200-odd other
panels stitched by groups from all over Scotland telling the story of
Scotland’s history and culture

Fingal’s Cave was what the organisers gave us to do and I’m sure we’ve
all cursed all those vertical lines and shades of grey/brown, and as
for the crazy paving of the rockfalls……but I think the end result
is beautiful and inspiring. Roll on the great tapestry of Scoraig.
