Member sought for Clyde Gateway board

Published Tuesday, 07 November 2017

Clyde Gateway is looking for a Rutherglen resident to fill an existing vacancy on its board.

A vacancy has arisen following the sudden death of Tommy Rooney, a community stalwart who served with great distinction on the Clyde Gateway board for more than three years.

Jim Clark, the Senior Manager for Communications and Governance at Clyde Gateway said: “Our board is a very diverse mix of people but the one thing they have in common is that they work tirelessly and selflessly to ensure there is a full and diverse programme of activities to bring about a physical, social and economic transformation across the entire area.

“We are seeking someone who lives within, or close to, the Clyde Gateway boundary in South Lanarkshire which takes in Rutherglen town centre, Burnhill, Farme Cross and Shawfield. Our ideal candidate will be someone who is already involved in community groups or voluntary organisations in the area and has demonstrated a commitment to improving the life and well-being of local residents."

The Board meets six times a year, on Monday mornings, at Rutherglen Town Hall between 10.30am and 12-noon. The successful candidate will also be asked to serve on our Community Committee which meets separately on three occasions each year.

For more information and to obtain your nomination pack are on the Clydegateway website - closing date for nominations is Thursday 30 November.
