‘RANDOM’ the graffiti artist ha

Buckley Murals produced a superb mural of Terry Pratchett on the boarded up old bus shelter at the Town Council offices. The mural raises awareness of Alzheimers disease, a condition¬†which Terry Pratchett suffered from. The mural has replaced an earlier one by RANDOM entitled ‘The Last Fighting Tommy’ featuring a depiction of Harry Patch. This had to be removed for safe keeping due to vandalism.

Passing of Councillor Ron Hampson

It is with deep sadness that the Town Council has to report that Councillor Ron Hampson passed way on 7th August 2017. Councillor Hampson had been a Member of the Town Council for 27 years and was Town Mayor in 1997. He was both respected and liked by everyone who met him. The Town Council’s thoughts and condolences go to Mrs Hampson and family.
