Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester has paid tribute to former Crewe and Nantwich Borough Councillor John Beech who has died.
He said," John was a first class Councillor who always worked really hard for the residents and the community he represented and lived in all his life. He represented the Acton Ward from 1995 until Local Government Reorganisation in 2009, when he retired. During his 14 years as a Borough Councillor he was always re-elected with a very large majority, showing the very high esteem he was held by his constituents. He served for a period as the Chief Whip of the Conservative Group and represented the Council on numerous bodies like the local Sports Council, the Nantwich Museum Trust and the Cheshire Association of Parish Councils. He also served as a School Governor.John was a very long serving member of Acton Parish Council.
I pay tribute to his long record of public service. John was a lovely man who was liked by all. I would like to pass on my condolences and symparthy to his wife Betty, his family and many friends. He will be sadly missed."
