Honorary Alderman Sir Stanley Yapp
It is with sadness that I advise you I have learned that Honorary Alderman Sir Stanley Yapp passed away suddenly yesterday. He leaves a wife, Christine, and family.
He was a Labour Councillor, 12 May 1960 to May 1969 for the Kingstanding Ward, May 1971 to May 1974 for the Washwood Heath Ward, May 1974 to May 1978 for the Erdington Ward, May 1980 to May 1982, May 1986 to May 1990 for the Oscott Ward and February 1993 to May 1994 for the Fox Hollies Ward. He became an Honorary Alderman on 11 July 1978.
Stan was a real character when he represented the Oscott Ward and I am sure a number of residents will have fond memories of him
