Joiners go fishing after half-century of service

Two local joiners have more time for their pastime of fishing after retiring after a combined 53 years of service to Tulloch Homes.

Angie Mackenzie of Inverness and Maryburgh colleague Michael Chisholm, both 65, received a presentation from Chief Executive George Fraser.

Angie, who spent 23 years with Cameron and Paterson, a division of Tulloch, said: "I started off working one a house project at Kilmuir, North Kessock, but eventually became involved in large developments at Milton of Leys.

“I’m a sea boat fisherman, sailing off Scrabster, or I do shore fishing on the West Coast.”

Michael, who started with Cameron and Paterson 31 years ago, said: "Inshes Wood was my first job with the firm but Milton of Leys, on both sides of the road, was to become the biggest development I worked on.

“I’m a trout and salmon angler, mostly on the River Conon – but wherever there’s water.”

Hugh MacGillivray, manager of Tulloch’s joinery team, said: "We’ve lost a great deal of experience with the retiral of Angie and Michael, who merit warm congratulations for their excellent service.”

Not surprisingly, presentation glasses were inscribed with fishing scenes!
