Norman A Maciver has been selected as the new chairman of the Stornoway Trust.
Mr Maciver from Back was one of the five successful candidates topping the poll for
the recent election for the community landlord.
The trust held a statutory meeting to formally declare and accept the new trustees
and to appoint a chairperson for the next three years.
Norman A Maciver was elected on a motion proposed by past chairman Calum Maclean,
seconded by Alex J Murray.
There were no other contenders for the role.
Mr Maciver, who takes up his third term as a trustee, expressed his gratitude for
the unanimous support that he had received.
He paid tribute to his predecessor Calum Maclean for his labours during what was
a very challenging and time-demanding period of office.
Mr Maciver said that he was looking forward to what he believes could be a very exciting
period for the trust across a variety of issues.
He expressed confidence the organisation is well equipped to move forward with the
best interests of the community at heart.
The other four successful candidates were Murdo F Campbell, Donald A Macleod, Catriona
Murray and Donald I Nicholson.
They join Colin Maclean, Calum Maclean, Alexander Murray and Donald Crichton. Usually,
there are ten trustees but one resigned and the governing rules laid down by Lord
Leverhulme do not permit holding a by-election.
