West Lothian Council said farewell to one of its longestserving members of staff as popular janitor, John Fraser, retired after a lengthy tenure with the council.
He had been a council employee for 39 years, spending the last 11 years with St Anthony’s Primary in his home town of Armadale.
During this time John became a popular figure with the school’s staff and pupils and was well known for his gentle, friendly nature as well as his enthusiasm for gardening, motorcycles and Arsenal FC.
He is now looking forward to spending more of his free time exploring these passions.
St Anthony’s teacher, James Campbell, commented:“John will be such a loss to our school community. He was always a calm, reassuring presence within the school and his length of service to West Lothian Council was amazing. We wish him a happy and rewarding retirement.”
