Wellhouse Housing Association appoints new chair

Maureen Morris

GLASGOW east end ‘stalwart’ Maureen Morris has been elected as chair of Wellhouse Housing Association (WHA).

She takes over from Darron Brown, who was chair for two years before deciding to step down at the 2021 AGM.

The role of vice chair has been filled by Clare Monteith, with Carol Torrie being elected as treasurer – with the two local residents bringing a ‘wealth’ of experience to the committee.

WHA said that the new committee members will continue the ‘positive work’ put in place by Darron, which included overseeing the adoption of new model rules at the association’s special general meeting in 2020, and the creation of a business plan for the community hub.

Darron, said, “I am proud of my work at WHA and hope that I have played my part in helping to create a vibrant community which our tenants are proud to call home. I have also had a strong focus on the future and considerable work is now underway to bring quality new housing to the area.”

Maureen Morris, who was previously chair of WHA from 2014 to 2019, added, “I am proud to take over as Chair from Darron who has made a very important contribution to the organisation and has helped to improve the quality of our homes to benefit tenants. I am now focused on taking this work forward and progressing our post pandemic plans for the organisation and local community.”
