Community council seeks new chairman.

Rosemount Community Council chairman announced that he wishes to retire from his post last night.

Willie Jaffray, 72 has served as chairman for several years but now feels that his other community commitments prevent him from being able to concentrate on his post.

Due to lack of interest however there is currently no council member willing to take over the post.

Unwilling to leave the council without a chairman Willie is not confident in finding a replacement soon.

He said: “I’m happy to do it, but at 72 I think i’ve done enough.”

Vice Chairman George Duncan said: “There’s a lack of interest in the community. I was the chairman previously and there are just not enough members.

“Local people only come when there’s an issue, but there’s day to day things that we need to support of the community with.”

Rosemount Community Council comprises of an average of five community councillors and two regular members of the public.

Rosemount Review is interviewing Willie Jaffray about the community’s issues tomorrow.
