Hawthorn Housing Co-operative committee member Betty Anderson
Hawthorn Housing Co-operative is very sad to report that its long standing committee member Betty Anderson has passed away.
Betty had been a committee member with the Co-op since 1998. During that time she showed huge commitment to the Co-operative and epitomised the co-operative’s ethos of self-help ensuring that we stayed close to our founding principles.
Betty was never slow to voice her opinions and campaigned vigorously to ensure that her community received a fair crack of the whip and the services that other areas may take for granted. As a result she was on first name terms with the director of cleansing!
Betty was very practical and was always prepared to put in extra work:
Betty’s hard work was recognised in 2016 when she was a finalist for EVH’s Helen MacGregor award for Committee Member of the Year.
Betty will be sorely missed by many.
