John Pols

I was a dialysis technician for 20 years working at the Western General and I was a window cleaner for 35 years, retired undefeated for 2 years.

It was the money that dragged me in, but I enjoyed the interaction with fellow members. You meet all sorts of people, I’ve never met so many different people in my life.

The most memorable part about the meetings was “feeding time at the jubilee zoo” when members got their lunch. I’ve learned about how you can go over things and everyone has their own view. I’ve learned when to keep my mouth shut.

I want to see more say by the people of Scotland. It would be nice if one or two of the recommendations get taken on by the politicians.
