5th November 2021
It is with great sadness that we report the death of our parish clerk, Geoff Dessent, who passed away on Monday, 25th October 2021.
Geoff joined Badgers Mount Parish Council in April 2018 and quickly proved himself an invaluable member of our team. We were enormously indebted to his knowledge and advice. He played a key role in coordinating the development of the Badgers Mount Neighbourhood Plan which remains a work in progress. On it's completion we shall dedicate it to his memory.
His 3 1/2 years with us marks him as the longest serving clerk in the Council's history. We remember him with fondness and he will be greatly missed.
Geoff had been quite unwell for some time but we had kept our hopes up for many months that he would be able to rejoin us. As recently as September he had expressed his keenness and desire to return to his role here but sadly it was not to be.
As we mourn his passing, we remember with gratitude all that he contributed to the Parish Council and to the community of Badgers Mount.
