Trib­utes to John

Loughborough Echo - - FRONT PAGE -

TRIB­UTES have been paid to Charn­wood Bor­ough coun­cil­lor, Coun John Suther­ing­ton, who has sadly passed away.

Coun Suther­ing­ton rep­re­sented the An­stey Ward and had served the coun­cil since be­ing elected in May 1999.

Coun Jonathan Morgan, leader of Charn­wood Bor­ough Coun­cil, said: “This is re­ally sad news and our thoughts are with John’s fam­ily and friends at this time.

“John was a pop­u­lar coun­cil­lor and cared greatly about the com­mu­nity and res­i­dents he served. He was also a great friend to many mem­bers on Charn­wood Bor­ough Coun­cil and he will be sorely missed.

“We know he has bat­tled health is­sues over re­cent years and it is tes­ta­ment to his char­ac­ter that he at­tended full coun­cil just a few weeks ago to make sure res­i­dents in his ward were rep­re­sented.”

Coun Suther­ing­ton’s most re­cent com­mit­tee mem­ber­ship in­cluded the over­view scru­tiny group and the li­cens­ing com­mit­tee.
