A FORMER councillor with the old Eastwood District council will be celebrating his 100th birthday in the new year.
James Stewart Wilson Jamieson was born on January 6, 1913 in Eastwood Avenue in Shawlands.
Known as Stewart, he spent more than 21 years with the council and at different times has been a founder of Eastwood Youth Group and secretary and chair of his local residents’ association.
Stewart married his wife Ann after serving in the army during the war.
Sadly, Ann died young and Stewart has continued alone ever since.
Fiercely independent, he lived in his own home until, through ill health, he had to move into Lindsayfield Care Home in July of 2011.
A very happy birthday, Stewart.
