A long-serving councillor and community stalwart has been honoured for his work in east Suffolk.

Bryan Hall, 76, announced he would not be standing as a Suffolk Coastal district councillor in the upcoming elections, after serving four terms representing Wickham Market. He is also retiring from the Wickham Market Partnership, of which he was a founding trustee.

Wickham Market Parish Council offered its thanks to Mr Hall at its latest meeting, when he received a round of applause from its members.

Parish chairman Dick Jenkinson said: “Thank you very much indeed for the tremendous support you’ve given Wickham Market over the past 16 years.”

The Partnership also paid thanks to Mr Hall at its recent annual general meeting, when he was presented with a tankard in recognition of his 14 years with the organisation.

A spokesman for the Partnership said: “He will be sorely missed for all the excellent work he has done over the past 14 years.”

Mr Hall said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family, particularly his grandchildren, after his retirement, though he stressed he would still be playing an active role in the community, where he has lived for the past 40 years.
