A fond farewell to long serving trustee


Antrim Enterprise recently bid farewell to their |longest serving| trustee – Freda Waite – who retired after 32 years dedication to the role.

As one of the founding directors at the social enterprise, she brought a wealth of experience both as a |small business owner| and as |PR and Press Officer| and |Lobbyist| for a small business organisation.

Her hard work and diligence has greatly contributed to making Antrim Enterprise the social enterprise it is today. Freda’s contribution to our overall vision and the guidance she has provided not only to Jennifer McWilliams as CEO but to the entire board will be sorely missed.

Jennifer McWilliams CEO, presents local company Hoddmimir’s wooden bowl to Freda, which has been turned from a fallen Yew in Antrim Castle Gardens. Yew is also associated as a symbol of longevity and of rebirth and regeneration; the perfect gift for someone retiring

A valuable asset to our organisation, she was someone who always contributed within the board room and has set a high bar for our remaining directors to follow.
