At a recent lunch in the Victoria Hotel, Rothesay, Bobby Reid was presented with a Rotary watch in recognition of his services to Fyne Homes for the past 53 years.
In 1961, Bobby joined the William Woodhouse Strain Housing Association Committee which subsequently merged with Bute Housing Association in 2002 to become Fyne Homes Ltd. He decided to step down following the AGM in September.
Bobby is the longest serving committee member the association has ever had and quite possibly the longest serving committee member of any registered social landlord.
Colin Renfrew, Chief Executive expressed his gratitude to Bobby for his dedicated service. Bobby will be missed from Fyne Homes Management Committee for the wealth of knowledge he has in relation to community and housing matters. He will however retain his interest in the subsidiary boards of Fyne Futures and Fyne Initiatives and as a Trustee of the William Woodhouse Strain Trust.
