HHP’s eleventh Annual General Meeting took place on 7 September 2017 in Lews Castle, Stornoway. The Chair, Mr Iain MacMillan, welcomed those present and commented that HHP was in a healthy position and continued to build on the success of the past ten years, despite operating in a challenging environment.
The Director of Finance & Corporate Services, Mr Donald MacLeod, gave a presentation on the financial statements for the year and advised that Auditors, Wylie & Bissett, gave the Partnership a clean audit report for the eleventh year running. Ms Templeton, representing Wylie & Bissett, commented that the outcome of the audit was an unqualified opinion.
The collected Membership then approved a resolution to reappoint Wylie & Bissett as External Auditors for the coming year, and a further resolution to donate £5,000 to five local charitable organisations. These are:
• MacMillan Nurses;
• Young Musicians Hebrides;
• Stornoway Phab Club;
• Western Isles Carers Support Network; and
• Western Isles Community Care Forum,
