Droitwich Editorial 12th Sep, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

ONE OF THE longest-serving and most dedicated members of Droitwich Town Council has passed away suddenly after a fall earlier this week.

Coun Roy Seabourne, who represents the West ward of the town, was elected to the town council in 2003 and was leader of the Labour Group until May.

Roy, a grassroots member of the Labour Party for more than 50 years, served as trustee on many local charities including Age UK Droitwich and Speakeasy NOW all of whom benefitted from his business consultancy background.

As well as Droitwich Town Council, Roy served on Wychavon District from 1997 until 2007, chairing the district council’s planning committee.

He also supported the Sunday Band Concerts in Lido Park.

Droitwich Mayor Coun Bob Brookes said: “We had some spirited debate and everything he did was for the good of Droitwich.

“He dedicated a lot of his life to Droitwich and he will be sadly missed.”

His Humanist funeral will be held at 3.15pm on September 25 at Worcester Crematorium.

It will be taken by his fellow town councillor and Labour Party colleague Edgar Harwood.

The familt request no flowers, but said donations in support of St Richard’s Hospice either on the day or to Crumps, Funeral Directors, would be welcomed.
