Don Davis

It is with much sadness that the Parish Council has to advise that councillor Donald (Don) Davis passed away this week following a short illness.

Don was co-opted to the Parish Council in September 2010. During his four years with the Parish Council Don served on many responsibilities, but the most notable were Rights of Way and Rectory Wood. Don championed for many of the worst Rights of Way to be resurfaced so they could continue to be enjoyed by all safely. Some of these have already been done, and others are in progress at the moment.

Don’s long term plan for Rectory Wood was to bring the woods back to a pleasant place for people to walk, or just sit and enjoy the quiet and nature. He had already made huge steps towards this by organising the thinning of the trees, planting new native trees, and forming a Friends of Rectory Woods group.

The Parish Council’s thoughts are with Don’s family at this sad time.
