Cathie was very passionate about the provision of affordable housing for all, over the years she spent many hours showing various housing ministers around the communities of Blairtummock and Rogerfield and then arguing with them to invest in these communities.

As such, she was instrumental in bringing funding into Blairtummock to enable the Association to provide good quality homes for existing and future generations.

Cathie also worked with committee members across the Easterhouse Housing & Regeneration Alliance in campaigning for investment within the whole of Easterhouse.

Margaret Pirrie, who succeeded Cathie as chair of Blairtummock in September 2016, said on behalf of the committee: “We are deeply saddened by this news. Cathie made an enormous contribution to the Association over many years and we have all benefited from her knowledge and commitment, not just the Association but the housing movement. Our thoughts are with her family at this time and she will be sorely missed by us all.”
