/ Passing of Councillor Peter Campbell
Ramsgate Town Council wishes to let it be known that Councillor Peter Campbell, passed away last night, peacefully, at the Pilgrims Hospice, Canterbury.
Peter had been ill for some time but had fully kept up his duties as Chairman and Councillor at Ramsgate Town Council right to the end. He bore his illness with humour and great fortitude, which I think says much about his strength of character.
He was one of the seminal influences in guiding the Town Council from its birth to its current position as an active organisation within the community in Ramsgate. He will be very much missed by me as Clerk, my staff, and all his colleagues on Ramsgate Town Council.
He was of course an active, well respected Councillor on Thanet District Council and I am sure they will wish to make their own tribute on his life and work.
He was a very active Councillor and Chairman, with an attendance record second to none. He took his responsibilities seriously, but these were often leavened with a great deal of humour and kindness.
He was very helpful to new Councillors in using his great experience of local government procedure, to help them understand some of the intricacies in the working of both councils.
As a mark of respect, the Town Council will be flying the Town flag at half-mast.
The Council would like to express their great sadness and condolences on Peter's passing, to his partner Mitzy, and the other members of his family.
