The Shewsy has bid a sad farewell to Steve Waterhouse who passed away on 8th February 2016. Steve was an amazing supporter of Shrewsbury House and his many and varied contributions are inspirational to those of us entrusted with continuing the youth and community work tradition.
His enthusiasm and commitment to events such as the Shewsy summer Fair and the Out of the Blue festival were remarkable. He was one of the first there and one of the last to leave and he often took the lead role in coordinating the many community events he was involved in. This years events will not be the same without him and his infectious enthusiasm and belief he brought to communities throughout the city will be sadly missed.
His formal role at Shrewsbury House was as a member of the Board of Management and also in a supervisory capacity offering support and guidance to the team leader. His knowledge, insights and observations were invaluable to those of us priveldged to have worked alongside him. His astute and often witty responses to problems were a calming influence that enabled perspective and clarity on many occasions. Steve was a friend, mentor, motivator, leader and epitomised the notion of teamwork.
Thanks for everything Steve…a quality human being.
