The former chief of an international actuarial firm who retired to Carradale is to step down from East Kintyre Community Council (EKCC) and Windfarm Trust.

Stuart Irvine, who ‘retires’ from EKCC at the end of March, returned to Scotland in 1985 and took up residence in Carradale, a village to which he had connections and where the family regularly spent summer holidays.

He was soon involved in many activities in the village, such as EKCC, the golf club, drama, Network Carradale, Clyde Fishermens Association, Abbeyfield and Saddell and Carradale Church, the latter being firstly in the choir and latterly as organist.

Mr Irvine said that he would like to thank all who have helped him over the past 33 years.

His involvement with Abbeyfield included being chairman in Scotland where there were 87 sheltered houses and eight nursing homes.

Prior to the move to Carradale, his business career involved much  overseas travel mainly to USA, Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Malaysia

In 1965, he was head-hunted to join Noble Lowndes and Partners, the leading actuarial business in the UK. He joined the main board in 1975 and was appointed chairman of all the overseas companies.
