FORMER Henley mayor Jim Corrall died on Monday, aged 83.

Mr Corrall, who was mayor from 1977 to 1978, was hospitalised last week following a fall at his home in Phyllis Court Drive.

He was a member of Henley Lions for 35 years and had been honoured with a Melvin Jones Fellowship, the highest accolade within Lions Clubs International. He also received the town medal for his contribution to Henley.

He was chairman of the Henley Talking Newspaper for 21 years and a member of the Henley Community Services management committee until it ceased to exist.

Mr Corrall was a parishoner of St Nicholas Church in Rotherfield Greys, together with his late wife, Rosemary, and he served as a sidesman for many years.

Town councillor Elizabeth Hodgkin said: “Jim was one of those people who did an awful lot and made very little noise about it. His mind was always sharp and he could be relied upon, especially regarding how something should be done.”
