Ron Flight

I was very sad to hear that, on Monday, Ron Flight passed away.

Ron was a long-standing resident of the Ancrum area and I had the pleasure of working alongside Ron a few years ago when we were both directors of the Ward Road Gym (prior to 2007, the gym was in my former Tay Bridges Ward).

Ron had a long and distinguished career in business in the city and he brought his considerable expertise to the Ward Road Gym Board.   Ron played a key role in the very successful campaign to upgrade and refurbish the gym to the excellent facility it is today.   

The gym was just one of the many ways Ron worked for the local community.   A man of great integrity and public service, Ron will be very sadly missed.   My thoughts go to Marjory and the family at this sad time.

Ward Road Gym

Until I became the Council’s Finance Convener during the last council administration, I sat on the Ward Road Gym Board. The gym board has had great success in ensuring the refurbishment of this much-used City Centre sporting facility, with co-operation from the City Council.
Was pleased to learn earlier this week that the gym now has its own website – click on the headline above to view it (and very professional it looks too).
The gym was in my old Tay Bridges Ward, but due to boundary changes, is now part of the ward adjacent to the new West End Ward.
