The Co-operative is delighted to announce that South Lanarkshire Council has bestowed upon Susan the prestigious Civic Award at an Official Civic ceremony on 17th November 2011 in The Council buildings in Hamilton.
Susan retired from the WWHC Management Committee at the AGM in September 2011, she will be badly missed.
Susan was a founder member of West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative Ltd back in 1989. For 22 years Susan has served the community of West Whitlawburn as a volunteer and has been a cornerstone of the Housing Co-operative’s outstanding success. Initially as treasurer of the Management Committee, then in 1993 as Vice Chairperson and in 1995 assumed the lead role as Chaiperson of West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative, which Susan discharged with remarkable aplomb and skill for many years. A bright, determined, strong character with a real sense of community interest and values, Susan is a very popular local figure.
Paul Farrell, The Co-operative’s Director said, “ We are delighted for Susan and her family. West Whitlawburn owes Susan a great deal. Such an award, which recognises Susan’s outstanding contribution to the community, is richly merited.”
