Andrew Park passed away peacefully on Thursday, 29th of July at Avonhaugh nursing home at the age of 91. Andrew was a well known local businessman who was extremely active within the community of Strathaven.
Andrew, along with Bill Beveridge, was instrumental in pushing the local council to build a swimming pool in Strathaven having raised donations of £300k with the help of various organisations and individuals in the town. He was the Chairman of the organising committee that resurrected Strathaven Gala Day which is still enjoyed by all in Strathaven today.
Our condolences from all at Strathaven John Hastie Museum Trust go out to Lesley, Abigail and Victor at this time.
