Storage Container

The Estate has taken possession of a new storage container which will be used to securely store its equipment and materials.

Its current location is only temporary, and a permanent home will be developed for it as part of the wider Keose Glebe Estate development plan, which will be circulated to households for consultation when it has been drafted.

A warm feeling inside

FES FM provide an emergency and routine repair and maintenance service for Hebridean Housing – both across the Western Isles, and here in Keose Glebe.

We are therefore delighted, and would like to give a very big thank you to FES for the donation of a storage heater for the Estate Office.

A warm office will definitely help our meetings and the general estate operation, particularly over the long winter months.

They were there to review the estate’s progress made in the first year of Community Ownership; to again discuss the strategic plan and direction of the estate; and to suggest projects or issues to be tackled or prioritised in year two.

Both the Estate Management Team, and the wider community were praised and thanked for their hard work and the volunteer hours put in.

The meeting noted that around 1700 hours of community effort had been invested thus far, and that a large number of projects and initiatives had been got underway.

The fact that the estate was now generating income, and enough income to meet its expenses was welcomed, and it was expected that further income would begin to drive additional development of the estate. Continue reading “Keose Glebe Planning and Photo Night”
