Why a new charity in 2015?

‘Looking to the Future’ was the theme of East Haven Residents' AGM in April 2015 as they considered whether or not the Association should apply to become a Scottish Charity Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). Many residents were of the view that both the legal form of the organisation and the name, 'Residents’ Association' was outdated and no longer reflected the aims and aspirations of the community. 

The Association was set up in 1996 when East Haven was unsuccessful in a bid to establish it's own Community Council to look after the needs and interests of the village and it’s people. It operated in a collaborative manner and different residents assumed lead roles from time to time to progress various issues and projects. The Association served the community well over 19 plus years and during it's octocentenary year saw East Haven extend its boundaries beyond the geographical community to embrace a much larger community.

There are many people who don’t live in East Haven but for a variety of reasons feel a close connection and who have invested something of themselves in the community. Residents therefore elected to dissolve the Residents' Association on succesful application to become a SCIO. Consultation took place about a new name for the organisation, a constitution and charitable aims. It was decided to integrate our new charitable aims into East Haven's sustainability strategy and a vote took place about the new name; East Haven Together.
