Gordon is new chair of Beachwatch Bute

Local craftsman Gordon Stevenson is the new chair of local charity Beachwatch Bute.

Gordon, previously a director of the organisation, took over as its new chairman at Beachwatch’s AGM in the Green Tree Cafe in Rothesay recently.

Jim McHugh agreed to become Beachwatch’s vice-chairman at the same meeting, while the charity’s other office-bearers are secretary Don Williams and treasurer Ian Hopkins.

The charity now also has a full complement of committee members.

Beachwatch’s ranger Sandra MacMillan gave her annual report at the meeting, and details will be published soon on the charity’s Facebook page (click on the link to the right of this article).
