It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Chairman, Colonel Mike Cheetham MBE, following a short period of ill health.
Mike was a long standing member of the Parish Council and had been the Chairman for the last 16 years. As an active member of the community Mike was always ready to offer help to his neighbours in the village and spent many hours providing transportation to the shops and medical appointments for those in need. He dedicated his life to aiding the armed forces community and worked as a volunteer for SSAFA, the armed forces charity, to support serving men and women and veterans and their families.
A huge loss to the community and his family, Mike will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
