David had been our longest serving Parish Councillor and for many
years represented Countesthorpe as District (until recently) and
County Councillor. David has always been a strong and fair voice
with the welfare of the village and surrounding area uppermost in
his mind and always ready to help wherever and whoever he could.
He will be missed enormously by the people he represented and the
councils he sat on.

Funeral arrangements will be made public when they are known.
Revd, Mick Gillespie, Parish Council Chairman.
