OBITUARY - COUNCILLOR MALCOLM JAMES

Parishioners will be saddened to learn of the death of Cllr. Malcolm James who had served as a loyal Member of Higham Parish Council since 1995.

Malcolm rarely missed attending our Parish Council Meetings and contributed a huge amount to village life. We knew that any project he took on was in safe hands and his particular area of interest was traffic management through our village and in particular the large number of HGV’s which seemed to deviate from the preferred lorry route and use the village roads. He became the appointed Governor representing the Parish Council on the Governing Body of Higham Primary School and so excelled in this role that he ultimately became Chairman. He never minded what job he took on, once volunteering to varnish the Millennium Dickens Character road signs before their installation, and through it all uppermost in his mind was looking after the interests of his Parishioners in the Three Crutches hamlet.

He will be sadly missed by us all.
