    Banc Organics has been running for 10 years this month. It has always been run as part of the charity Tir Eithin Farm. Unfortunately the charity is being wound up and Banc Organics has been forced to set up a new company and relocate on a tight schedule. This has give us the opportunity to reorganise as a Community Interest Company and relaunch with a clearer focus on our core aims.
    We face a number of large challenges and are still trying to work out some logistics of relocating and finding new premises. However we are optimistic that we have a bright future once we have made the transition.
    We are in the process of incorporating a Community Interest Company and are taking a break from trading for the month of January. We will be holding a launch event at the end of January (details to follow).
    We are looking for directors to join the board of the new company. This would be a governance and guidance role not asking for work in the day to day running of the scheme. We envisage 4 or 6 meetings a year and maybe a bit of general advice and guidance. We have a very experienced team but are seeking to broaden the areas of expertise available to guide our management. If you feel you have something to offer particular experience in management and marketing but also interest and enthusiasm would be valuable. some of the seats on our board will be reserved for workers, customers and volunteers but some outsiders would be very valuable. Expenses to attend meetings or other business will be available. Please feel free to chat about this with me (07815486193).
