Praise for stalwart David
Rural Stirling Housing Association’s longest-standing board member has announced his retirement after 29 years of service.
David Frood’s decades of commitment were recognised at the association’s AGM in Callander.
Chairperson Margaret Vass said: “David has made an invaluable contribution to the development of rural social housing for the best part of 30 years.
“His ambition of ensuring new homes were built, existing homes were renovated and local people were involved has positively benefited many people across our communities and his colourful and refreshing approach has made him a pleasure to work alongside.”
David, from Strathblane, joined the Rural Housing Steering Group in 1989 and chaired the inaugural meeting of RSHA the following year.
He said“In the early days we were a group of people with little experience of the issues around the development and management of social housing but the common bond we had was our desire to ensure affordable homes were built in our communities that met the needs of local people across our large and socially diverse rural area.“
