Tributes paid to former councillor
Published 03/02/14



PARISH councillors in Sonning Common have paid tribute to a former colleague following his death.

Robin Hunter, who had been suffering from prostate cancer, died on January 4, aged 79.

His funeral was held at St John’s Church in Kidmore End on January 17.

He and his wife Rosemary came to live in Sonning Common in 1968 and had two daughters.

Mr Hunter, who was a Royal Navy submariner before working in engineering, sat on the parish council in the Eighties and Nineties and chaired the finance committee.


He also audited accounts for the village hall management committee and helped out at the youth club.

Council chairman Douglas Kedge said: “For many years he was a very effective member of this parish council. Robin had great drive and determination and made a contribution to many aspects of the village.

“In particular he was the prime mover behind the purchase of the Millennium Field for the village and without his pressure it would never have happened.

“Until a few months ago he worked as a behind-the-counter volunteer at the police office in Lea Road. Robin will be much missed.”

Councillor Barrie Greenwood said: “He quietly went about his business but had very strong opinions and views. He was a quiet and modest man but very determined and effective.”
