ANGUS Care and Repair chairman Ken Fenwick has stood down as the group’s chairman after a decade at the helm of the organisation.
Mr Fenwick, a former Angus Council housing director, has been involved with the service since it began in 1994, firstly in his council capacity until retirement and then as a volunteer on the board of directors before his appointment as chairman.
Newly elected chairman Callum McNicoll congratulated Mr Fenwick on his “excellent leadership” and, at a hand-over of the chair on Monday, said the former chairman would be a hard act to follow he planned to continue the role with equal enthusiasm and dedication.
Angus Care and Repair was established to help disabled and older people in the county remain as independent as possible by providing a repair, adaptation and improvement service. Latterly it has widened its remit to provide independent advice on security, energy tariffs and benefits.
Judith Leslie, company manager, said: “Ken has always been a marvellous figurehead for Angus Care and Repair. He has always been totally committed to the ethos to assist older and disabled people in Angus to remain independent in their own homes and has been the best ambassador.
“I am thankful that he is to continue on the board of directors as he has a huge wealth of knowledge to assist in guiding our organisation. I would like to personally thank him for all his support over the years and for his selfless and very considerable contribution to our company.”
