On February 27 a packed St Peter’s Church bade farewell to Derek Denyer, a Hersham South councillor for 20 years and a most distinguished Mayor of our Borough, who had passed away last month.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for Derek in helping others and solving problems; his warmth, generosity and kindness touched so many people. He was a Councillor who got things done for his community.
He will be sorely missed and the huge attendance at his funeral service demonstrated the affection of his legion of friends.
Our thoughts are with Olga and their family.
