John Ford


Proposed by Paul Padfield
Seconded by David Maguire FCA

John has been an Arran resident since 2008. He is a retired Chartered Engineer and Physicist, keen to promote an efficient lifeline ferry service to the mainland for all living on Arran, especially those of advanced years.

"I have found the Arran Community Council ineffective as regards ferries and have zero confidence in the Arran Ferry Committee which is self-perpetuating and is primarily concerned with commercial interests. It is time for the voice of the Arran residents to be heard and I wish to assist in achieving safe harbours and reliable and diverse ferry routes to the mainland.

My skills are: Retired chartered engineer and nuclear physicist. Accountancy and managing an island committee bank account for 3 years. Coastal skipper and yacht master. Naval background."

About Us

The current state of our lifeline ferry service shows it is not fit for purpose in terms of reliability, resilience and infrastructure. The Arran Ferry Action Group is a new and fully representative lobbying group, set up to represent Arran interests in demanding service improvements and accountability in future investment decisions.
