2011 (4) Photos 212
An evening of entertainment organised by Cllr Brian Silvester at Willaston Social Club to celebrate his 35 years of service as a Councillor raised more than £1,500 for local good causes in memory of former Parish Council Chairman Mike Heywood. The first donation from the fund has been made to Willaston Scouts. A cheque for £575 was presented at the Willaston Fete on the village playing fields.

Cllr Silvester said," Willaston Scouts do excellent work with local young people and I salute the local volunteers who give so freely of their time to enable the scouts to operate. I am very pleased that I have been able to help in this way. The money is to be used to provide a drying area at the Scout Hut in Park Road, Willaston. I would like to thank all those who supported the fundraising at the celebration evening."

Cllr Silvester went on to say, "Thirty five years service is a remarkable milestone in my life. There have been numerous highlights and successes and I will always treasure those. I greatly enjoy serving as a councillor. I would like to thank all those residents who have voted for me to be their Councillor over the last 35 years. It is an honour to serve them. I now look forward to the next 35 years!!!"
