Stonehaven Community Councillor Ian Hunter was recognised for his long service recently after clocking up 34 years of volunteering.
Ian was presented with a token of appreciation at the Stonehaven and District Community Council (SDCC) AGM last week, and was described as a model community councillor by his peers.
Phil Mills-Bishop, the current Vice Chair of the SDCC said: “For me Ian has always been someone whom I respect greatly in that he always speaks up for minorities, is passionate about democracy, transparency, accountability and is in every way a model Community Councillor who has given so much over many decades.”
Speaking at the meeting, Ian thanked Chairperson Knud for his kind words on his service. Ian is also well known for his active role at Mearns FM, attending community events throughout Kincardine and Mearns.
Knud added: “Ian Hunter provides a lot of valuable experience to the Community Council and other Community Groups in the Kincardinshire and Mearns area. He will always look to promote social justices , and he will try his best to ensure that Stonehaven is a good place for all ages groups to work and live in.
On Thursday and Friday mornings Ian presents the morning program at Mearns local radio, and he is keen to gather views from local residents on how we together can keep improving Stonehaven as a place to live.”
