Gorebridge secretary ready to step aside

RETIREMENT isn’t in Archie Pacey’s vocabulary, but he is trying to reduce his workload.

The pensioner at the heart of the Gorebridge community is preparing to surrender one of several public service duties next month.

Secretary of Gorebridge Community Council for around 13 years (he’s lost count himself), he has decided to relinquish this role to concentrate his efforts on other local issues, such as the Community Hub.

He told members at the recent meeting that he would not be seeking re-election to the secretary’s chair.
