Councillor Robin Currie, Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Housing, said: ‘This is wonderful news. Kelly has a real passion for the work she does, and goes above and beyond to provide the best possible outcomes for empty homes in Argyll and Bute. Kelly is an extremely worthy winner and a credit to the service. Well done.’
