Ken Andrew is 53 years old, married with one son, and has lived in the West End of Glasgow for 35 years. Ken reckons that over the years he’s lived in every part of the Hillhead Ward having stayed in Bank Street, Raeberry Street, Byres Road, Partickhill Road, St George’s Road, Huntly Gardens, Lansdowne Crescent and Woodlands Drive; not necessarily in that order.
A graduate of Strathclyde University, Ken worked for many years as a Prosthetist for the West of Scotland artificial limb service, originally at the old Belvidere Hospital and laterally at the Southern General. Ken now works for NHS Fife managing equipment services for the physically disabled which includes artificial limbs, wheelchairs and equipment that allows individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.
In his spare time Ken can often be seen running the streets of the West End and has regularly run in 10k road races; Ken describes his progress as 'slow but steady.'
A lifelong Partick Thistle fan and regular at Firhill, Ken’s ambitions for the club know no bounds although a challenge for the league title and good cup run would be nice.
Ken wants to continue the good work that was done by George Roberts and wherever possible improve the services and facilities in Glasgow for all its people.
