Rab Parry was elected to Holmes Chapel Parish Council in May 1980, 40 years ago. Over this time he has served as chairman twice, in 1989/90 and 1996/97 and been very active in many other positions on council committees. His contribution to parish council business and activities over this long period has been extensive and his local knowledge of great use to the council.
During this time he has also shown great commitment to other organisations including the Cheshire Brine Subsidence Compensation Board, Cheshire County Adoption Panel, Manchester Airport Consultative Committee and Cheshire Community Action. This in addition to having served as a school governor for Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and had various roles as an elected member for Congleton Borough and Cheshire County Councils.
Rab’s public service is exemplified by the time and effort he has given to faithfully serve others.
The Parish Council want to thank him publicly for all his hard work and faithful service. Despite the difficulties of these current times, we want to take a moment to reflect on all he has contributed and achieved over the last 40 years. He has given so much to not only the people of Holmes Chapel, but the many organisations who have also benefitted from his wisdom and service – thank you Rab and congratulations from us all.
