Councillor Alex Carder

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Councillor Alex Carder passed away peacefully in the early hours of this morning.

Alex was one of our current and longest serving Councillors, having joined on 20th March 1990, elected as Planning Committee Chairman from 8th May 1991 until 13th May 2003 and Past Chairman from 13th May 2003 until 17th May 2011. He had been successfully re-elected on 6th May 2021.

We will, of course, be doing something to mark the massive contribution he made to our community, which will act as a permanent reminder of his service. However, this must be in discussion with his family.

The Village flag at the Bouverie Hall has been lowered to half mast, as a mark of respect. When we have any further details on immediate arrangements we will let you know.
