The Scotland Island Residents Association Committee (SIRAC) has a number of established subcommittees (also called Working Groups), each with a team leader. Some of the working groups also manage the services provided by SIRA to the community.
Working groups meet on a regular basis and discuss matters that may have been delegated to them by the SIRA committee or are brought up as discussion items from within the working groups or members of the association. Working groups may need to engage with the community to gauge opinion or to understand how strongly the community feels about certain matters.
Any interested islander who is a member of SIRA is welcome to join one or more of the working groups. The involvement and skills of community members help SIRA to provide a more meaningful service, so we encourage everyone to get involved!

I lived on the island for a year during 2016-2017. When I moved off the island I missed island life and the incredible community we have here. I have recently bought a house on the island, am delighted to be living back here and am keen to ensure that we do everything to preserve this incredibly special place that we are privileged to call home. For work I head up Marketing for a global IT company. In my spare time you will see me undertaking renovations on my house, paddle boarding, kayaking or walking my little puppy, Mr Darcy. I look forward to being part of the island committee.
Boyd is an accountant and seeks to bring simplicity and clarity to the association’s financials. He’s happy to receive requests for information and answers.
My name is Fabienne. Before you ask, yes I am French. Our family bought a property on the island ten years ago and we finally made it here in January, 2018 now that our children are old enough to be at school. I am from a rural background and love that natural aspect of Scotland Island. My work revolves around hydrogeology or groundwater resources management if you prefer. When I get some time, I love baking, cooking and throwing pots and bowls (ceramics).
Colin is a retired retail executive. For the last 17 years he has owned and managed the Scotland Island Lodge guest house with his wife Rosemary.
