I joined Ratho and District Community Council in about 1983 and was appointed Treasurer in April 1984 and subsequently chair in October 2014, having been de facto vice chair for quite a while! Ratho and District Community Council straddles two wards Almond and Pentland Hills. I was our representative on the Pentland Hills Neighbourhood Partnership and have been the Chair of the funding Panel since 2010 as well as being a member of the Area Board and Safety Panel until they were abolished. I have also represented our Community Council on the Almond Neighbourhood Partnership. I am at present also a member of the Checkpoint group, which looks at the Edinburgh Partnership Community Participation and Communications Strategies. I elected Treasurer of the EACC in 2015

EACC belongs to every Edinburgh Community Council

Its aim is to provide support, advise and give a collective voice for community councils when facing the challenges community councillors encounter on an almost daily basis. No one person is more important than any other. All community councils have a voice on the EACC!!
