West Lothian Courier - - District News -

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.”
