Progress at September 2012

Christine Grahame MSP secured a September 2012 debate at Holyrood Parliament to discuss the importance of the Great Polish Map of Scotland.  This was followed by a reception with our supporter institutions in attendance -the First Minister briefly looked in.

The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has granted us new status as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).

Our registration number is SC043255.  This gives us the ability to claim Gift Aid tax exemption and provides us with limited liability.

We have received confirmation from Historic Scotland that the Great Map fulfils requirements for category B regional listed status as a significant historic site.  We now have confirmation of formal listing.

Barony Castle is now under new and local ownership.  The new owners are favourable to restoration and have pledged financial support

We continue to battle with weed control and tidy up work.
