TOWN COUNCIL MOURNS DEATH OF PAST MAYOR

TOWN COUNCIL MOURNS DEATH OF PAST MAYOR

It was with great sadness that the Town Council and staff received the news of the death of former Mayor Paul Gadsby on 11th June following a short illness. He had served as a Borough Councillor from 1969 and then as a Town Councillor until May 2011. He was Mayor in 1998- 1999.

Cllr Pam Whiting, Leader of Higham Ferrers Town Council said "Higham Ferrers has just lost a true gentleman. If you met Paul in the street he would always raise his hat when he greeted you. Paul was one of the most polite, caring and understanding people you would wish to find. Indeed I feel very privileged to have known him. Having served with Paul on the Town Council for several years he was always keen to help new councillors in any way he could, and indeed was a great help to me when I first became a councillor. Being such a quiet and unassuming man it did take him a few years before he decided that he would like to become the Town Mayor, and this was a position he carried out in the excellent manor you would expect from him. It was with great sadness that we heard the news that Paul had passed away following a short illness, and he will be sorely missed not only by fellow Councillors, but also members of the local Methodist Church."
