 a) Dr. Alec Davies

Members of the Council wish to express their condolences to Councillor Davies and her lovely family on the death of Alec. He was not only a devoted husband, an inspirational father, grandfather and a loyal friend to many but he was a real gentleman to all who knew him in this community. And many people did know him because of his career in medicine locally and the care he showed to his patients. However, to many friends and neighbours, he will be remembered for the engaging, honest & sincere way he showed how important you and your conversation was to him. As his son said at the funeral, 'He was an exceptional human being'. What an amazing legacy to leave behind, such lovely memories in so many people's minds. if you would like to read the full eulogy, please click here
