Captain Sir Tom Moore 1920 – 2021
Councillors and staff are extremely sad to hear of the passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore.
The Captain Tom Foundation has issued a statement which perfectly captures his spirit and legacy – here is an extract*:
“He was so passionate about The Foundation’s vision for a more hopeful world and equal society and was immensely proud of the growing legacy it was establishing in his name.
We have been working with Captain Tom to create positive impact around causes close to his and the families hearts, from combating loneliness to championing education and equality and of course supporting the incredible NHS carers and frontline workers whom he held in such high regard.
Whilst we mourn his loss, we celebrate his life and will be forever grateful for his optimistic philosophy and wonderful spirit.
Thank you Captain Sir Tom. Because of you tomorrow will be a good day for so many more.”
In honour of Captain Sir Tom Moore, the flag is today being flown at half mast at the Town Hall. Our condolences go to his family.
