Didn’t they do well?
WELL done to Jackie Ross, who has received the accolade of Special Constable of the Year at the 2017 Scottish Police Excellence Awards ceremony at the Tulliallan Police College.
A delighted Jackie, who has completed close on 11 years as special constable on Islay and Jura, was presented with her award by the Justice Secretary Michael Matheson.
Also on hand to congratulate the winning Ileach was Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, whose father and grandfather were both police officers on the island.
Congratulations are also due to John Rountree, David MacPherson and Douglas Clyne, who have completed 30 years of devoted service with the local firefighters.
The trio’s excellent contribution to this vital fire and rescue service has not gone unmarked.
