We are sad to announce that our former Chairman, Neil Phillips, passed away recently. Neil was a well known local community activist, and a long serving and committed member of the Boards of Partick Works and Partick Housing Association, which he chaired from 2008 to 2010. Neil’s main interest and professional expertise was in the field of energy efficiency and many of his ideas, aimed at reducing our carbon footprint and residents’ fuel bills, found their way into our new build and rehabilitation projects.
He’ll also be remembered for re-launching the Association’s newsletter, The Partick Times, and for personally researching and writing many of the issues. Neil was a lively and enthusiastic contributor to every meeting he attended and his no-nonsense brand of Northern English humour will be missed by everyone in the Partick community.
