A street in a new Callander housing development is to be named in honour of the longest-serving post office worker in the UK who lived in the town.
The Observer last month told how Hamish Menzies passed away at home, aged 86.
Residents paid their respects, taking to the streets and doorsteps and applauding as the funeral procession passed.
In a touching gesture, Callander Community Council requested that a street in the ongoing Claish Farm project be named in his honour.
The community council this week confirmed that it has received approval from Stirling Council to have one of the new streets named Hamish Menzies Drive.
Mr Menzies is survived by wife Marion, son Calum and daughter-in-law Mairi as well as grandchildren Lachie and Morvyn.
A popular figure, Mr Menzies was for many years the postmaster in Callander Post Office.
He started work at the Post Office aged 15 as a telegram boy, cycling over the hills and fields to deliver important news and messages across the Trossachs.
At the age of 18 he was called up to the Army for his National Service and posted to the former West Germany.
He did almost 20 years as a van-driving postie, but for the last 40 years was the postmaster in the town.
Community councillor Richard Johnson was behind the bid to have the street named in Mr Menzies’ honour. He said: “Hamish was such a popular person that it seemed appropriate to have a permanent memory of him in Callander. I approached Stirling Council to see if one of the new roads in the Claish Farm housing development could be named after him and, with the agreement of the family, the road into the development will be called Hamish Menzies Drive.”
