Councillor Terry Clements receives special goodbye from Horringer parish
A councillor known for always taking a close interest in local issues received a special goodbye after 38 years of service.
Terry Clements represented the Horringer ward for West Suffolk Council during the end years of his political career.
And on November 4, Ickworth Women’s Institute Pop up Coffee Shop in Horringer hosted a fond farewell for Cllr Clements with ex-colleagues and friends in attendance.
Colin Knight, chairman of the parish council, said: “Terry Clements has been a great long term supporter and friend to the people of Horringer, at both County Council and District Council level.
"He has always taken a close interest in local issues and has often assisted in local projects and schemes where he has been able to make local government grants available to community groups.
"He will be sorely missed."
Cllr Clements was a supporter of Horringer and Ickworth WI, helping them to set up the coffee shop with a grant in 2017.
The shop is held on the first Thursday of every month in the community centre.
Horringer hedgehogs and Horringer Pre-School have also been supported by Cllr Clements during his tenure.
Cllr Clements was presented with a tankard at the ceremony earlier this month, and flowers were handed to his wife, Vivienne.
The tankard has been engraved with the words 'A True Friend to Horringer'.
