Retirement of Cllr David Richards from the Parish Council

“David Richards served on the Parish Council for nearly 10 years. His thoughtful
and well balanced contributions were always much appreciated. His special
responsibilities included representing Ellisfield at the Basingstoke & Deane
Association of Parish Councils (BDAPTC) which he regularly attended, and
Highways issues. As Ellisfield’s point of contact with Highways, he had the
thankless task of time and again communicating our pot hole problems. Others
would have given up in frustration but he manfully discharged the duty for a
number of years, for which we are very grateful. He also, at the time of the flash
floods two years ago, produced a comprehensive map of Ellisfield’s grips, drains,
culverts and ditches. We are grateful for his service and we will miss him.”
