While we are all living through some very difficult times indeed right now, it is really very nice to be able to celebrate something positive as a Council.
We are therefore very pleased to congratulate Councillor Reg Williams on achieving 25 years in the service of Wombourne residents as a Parish Councillor.
Councillor Reg Williams was first elected to the Council in 1995 and has served alongside quite a number of Councillors in that time, including of course, his late wife Joan.
Still a very active member of the Parish Council, Reg is well known for his very thoughtful and considered contributions to meetings, as well as his disarming smile and witty observations. His encyclopaedic knowledge of planning has proven invaluable in his continued role as Chairman of the Planning Committee, and his introductory talk on the subject has become something of a much appreciated right of passage for new Members.
It therefore gives us great pleasure in congratulating Councillor Williams on achieving this milestone, and sending him many well wishes in recognising this service and wishing him many more years of dedicated service to come.
Congratulations Councillor Williams.
