Christina Cameron known as Kit (Chair)
Kit has lived in Whitebridge with her husband since 1999, prior to which was 4 years in Fort Augustus. Originally from West Lothian and brought up in East Africa she started her career as a nurse in Edinburgh. Marrying a Highlander, she went to live in Germany, returning to the Lothians then moving south to Norwich in East Anglia where she worked for a private nursing home.
She has 22 years’ experience in social work employed by Highland Council at the Telford Centre in Fort Augustus for 17 years as a Senior Social Care Worker. During this time she was given the opportunity to gain experience as a Manager for a 24 bed care home in Inverness. Her next opportunity came when she was asked to manage a 32 bed care home for older adults in Fort William in 2012. At this time health and social care integration was progressing and in 2013 NHS took over all the Highland Council Care Homes. Kit was employed by NHS as Care Home Manager until her retirement at the end of 2017.
Jan Hargreaves (Secretary)
Jan has run Foyers shop and post office since 2010, together with her husband Simon. Her background is in hospitality, retail and social services. All three of her children (all fully fledged adults these days) have a genetic disorder which has meant years of involvement with education and social services. Jan hopes to be able to contribute, in some small way, to the amazing work and projects that BCC has brought to our community.
