A member of Campbeltown Community Council (CCC), known for standing her ground has retired after more than 30 years’ service.

Cathy Duncan once said that her inspirations for working on the Community Council was another stalwart of the town, Nancy Smith, who is memorialised  on a bench in the Linda McCartney garden.

During her emotional final meeting, CCC secretary, Alasdair MacPhail, said: ‘I would like to take the time to thank a member who is retiring after many years of loyal service to the people of Campbeltown.

‘Cathy Duncan who is standing down has been a dedicated member in one way or the other for three decades.

‘Cathy’s unwavering commitment to the Community Council and the local community is well documented throughout the years and includes the fantastic senior citizens concert held every year.

‘We would like to thank you for your hard work and commitment, and following your retirement the Community Council will be a different place.

‘You will be much missed Cathy.’
