Vi­tal part miss­ing from Henry trib­ute

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I WAS pleased to see the ar­ti­cle on Henry Wilson on page two of the Ad­ver­tiser last week but dis­ap­pointed to find that, although his many other ac­tiv­i­ties in Bea­cons­field were men­tioned, his in­volve­ment in the Bea­cons­field In­de­pen­dents was not.

He was first elected to the Town Coun­cil as an In­de­pen­dent in 1991 and after a pe­riod off he was elected again in 2003 un­til 2011.

He be­came our trea­surer in 2005 and served in this ca­pac­ity un­til his death on Septem­ber 3, 2014. He be­lieved pas­sion­ately in the need for lo­cal pol­i­tics to be lo­cal and not in­flu­enced by na­tional party pol­i­tics and was deeply dis­turbed by the re­cent ten­dency in our coun­cil for the lat­ter di­rec­tion.
