Mayor Peter Webb's tribute to outgoing Upton councillor Simon Speers
3:10pm Saturday 2nd November 2013 in News
UPTON Town Council will be looking for another new recruit after the resignation of one of its members.
Simon Speers has left the council due to his increased work commitments, much to the sadness of mayor Peter Webb.
Councillor Webb paid tribute saying: “He just felt that he could not do justice to the role anymore.
“It is very sad to see him go because he was a very valuable member of the council.”
Coun Webb said Mr Speers has agreed to stay on with the council’s ‘capital assets pathfinder programme’ – a project looking at ways to maintain services and facilities such as the library in Upton in the face of public spending cuts.
“He has been the lead on that and he has done a very good job,” said Coun Webb.
As we reported in your Malvern Gazette last week, former mayor Eric White has just been elected to the council following the resignation of Jennifer Gibbons.
