THE Mayor of Whitchurch has paid tribute to a fellow councillor who has passed away.

Councillor John Clark informed those at the Whitchurch Annual Town Assembly on April 29 that Cllr Peter Williams had died on April 26.

He said: “Our thoughts are very much with his wife Pauline and their family, at this very difficult time. On moving to Whitchurch, Peter very soon became a part of the community, supporting a number of groups.

“He was a member of the town council for a number of years which included a term as mayor, and he will be greatly missed.”
