Victory Hall president Hamish Isaac is retiring from his hectic Highland life to take up a more tranquil position among the rolling hills of the Borders.
But before he escapes his friends at the Benderloch Palladium wanted to mark his tenure at the venue and have presented him with an Argyll Oak charcuterie board made by local wood crafter Dirk Campbell.
A retired dentist, Hamish has been on the Hall committee for around 10 years, seven of which he has served as president. He and his wife Jane also ran the Argyll Carriage Driving branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association.
The presentation was made by Maimie Cattanach and the committee joined Joy Cameron in thanking Hamish for his steady hand on the hall tiller over the past decade.
‘Hamish and Jane will both be greatly missed,’ said Joy.
‘In his time as president, Hamish has steered us through challenging times, as well as his hard work in creating the opportunities for the future refurbishment and longevity of The Victory Hall, all the while having a smile on his face and an easy manner.’
