Welcome to The Glenlivet and Inveravon Community Website. This is a website predominantly for keeping the community informed of all the news and upcoming events as well as giving everyone an opportunity to exchange views and ideas and solve local issues through the forthcoming forum.
The Glenlivet and Inveravon Community Association has open meetings every three months, in various venues throughout the community. It also has committee meetings, usually one between the open meetings. The next open meeting will be Wednesday 24 April 2013 at 7.30 pm in the Glenlivet Hall.
The website also welcomes visitors and prospective visitors who should find the “upcoming events” section helpful as well as the local links which include Local attractions and accommodation. Please enjoy looking through the website and let us know what you think. Also if you have any local photos please send them to us. We might even put them on the home page!
What Is GICA?
GICA is Glenlivet and Inveravon Community Association, and it's quite simply everyone who lives in Glenlivet and Inveravon – no-one has to join, you are automatically a member if you live in the area! GICA promotes the welfare and interests of all the residents regardless of politics, religion, culture or age.
Where Is GICA?
GICA meetings are held quarterly and the venue moves about between The Braes Hall, Glenlivet Public Hall and Inveravon Primary School. Meetings are usually held at 7.30pm. on the last Wednesday in January, April, July and October. The AGM is held in October. Naturally everyone is welcome to come along and ask questions and join in the discussions.
Who is GICA?
GICA is run by a committee of twelve with a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and Treasurer and representatives from all over the community reflecting different ages and interest groups. We are especially proud of having an under-sixteen youth representative who puts forward the views of our young people. Our local councillors attend and so do officers from The Moray Council to discuss specific issues. We also have, from time to time, Sub Committees. At the moment we have five – Best Kept Village, Fishing, Marypark Playpark, Tea in the Park, and Dornell Windfarm. These are chaired by one of the committee but have their own members from the community. We also have representatives who attend other meetings and forums including The Speyside Forum, Tomintoul & Kirkmichael Community Association, the Association of Cairngorm Community Councils, CNP Sustainable Tourism Forum, Moray Access Forum, Tomintoul and Glenlivet Regeneration Project, Glenlivet Public Hall.
We are also very proud of the way we publicise our doings; the minutes of meetings can be found on this website, the Thistledown website and are also in the local shops for all to see.
