Honorary Alderman George Harper
It is with sadness that I advise you I have learned that Honorary Alderman George Harper passed away yesterday morning, following a long battle with cancer. He leaves a wife, Bronwyn, and family.
He was a Labour Councillor, 3 May 1984 to May 1988 for the Oscott Ward and May 1990 to May 2004 for the Kingstanding Ward.
George was very much of the old style Councillor in as much as he cared passionatley about the residents he represented and worked very hard for them.
I will always be greatful for the help and support he gave me when I first became a Councillor.
George had a great sense of humour and could alway be relied on. I like many others will miss him.
