Death of former Parish Councillor

31 October

We’re saddened to report that former Parish Councillor Neil Ogden died last weekend. Neil had been a Parish Councillor for several years until January 2017.

Andrew Batty, Chairman of East Keswick Parish Council said Neil made a substantial contribution to the village ‘Neil was very well connected in village life and that made his membership of the Parish Council and contribution to it so valuable. He seldom missed a meeting and contributed an opinion to most subjects. He was forthright in his views but always constructive, supportive and friendly. Even after he resigned he was still in touch suggesting ideas and making comments. The village has lost a true activist and we send our condolences to his wife Beryl’.

The funeral takes place at St Mary Magdalene Church, Moor Lane, on Friday 9th November at 2.15pm
