My name is Pat McComish and I have lived in the area for 12 years. I was born in the Gallowgate and moved to the Dennistoun area when I got married. For 11 years I worked in Greggs the Bakers as an Assistant Manager and when that shop closed I retired.
I attended the Reidvale AGM in 2017 and heard that the Association was looking for new Committee Members and I expressed an interest at that time. I was then invited as an observer to the September Management Committee and was then co-opted on as a Committee Member in January 2018.
Since I joined the Management Committee I look at the area in a different light and realise the work that is put in by the staff and committee of Reidvale. I also volunteer in the Reidvale Centre Cafe and love helping out and meeting the customers and I also now appreciate the need for tenant involvement in the area.
