Move to a Registered Charity

With a view to acquiring an apiary site of our own, the committee made plans to change legal entity and become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). This served 2 purposes, giving the association a legal entity which can hold leases or purchase land and gives the entity charitable status, which our aims and objectives have always fulfilled.

In June 2018 we applied to the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) to become an SCIO and this was granted on 27th July 2018 and we were assigned charity no SC048587

The original 10 committee members were appointed trustees of the charity and all assets and liabilities were transferred to the new entity at an Extraordinary General Meeting on 31st October 2018.
