Tributes have flooded in following the death of Roy Nicholas who was a member of Minchinhampton Parish Council for an outstanding half a century.

His funeral will take place at 11am on Friday, February 8th, 2019, at Minchinhampton Parish Church with a private committal afterwards.

Cllr Nicholas, 82, had served on the council for a continuous 50 years and had been looking forward to a celebration of the milestone achievement before his recent illness overtook events. More »

"You have to recognise that he was absolutely dedicated to public service and his contribution to the community cannot be dismissed. It is unlikely to be repeated in a hurry," said Cllr Nick Hurst, the current chairman of Minchinhampton PC.

Cllr Nicholas, who also served on both the Stroud District and Gloucestershire County councils and on countless charities, was himself chairman at Minchinhampton for 18 consecutive years after originally joining it in the late 1960s. He was currently its vice-chairman, and chairman of its Finance Committee.

A resident of Minchinhampton, Cllr Nicholas died at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on 1st January and is survived by his son and daughter.

After his death, flags were flown at half-mast at Ebley Mill, the headquarters of Stroud District Council where Cllr Nicholas was chair from 1983 to 1987.

"Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time," an SDC spokesman said. » Less
