Passing of former Cllr Robin Page
The Council is saddened to hear that former Councillor Robin Page has died.
He was one of the authority’s original councillors, representing the Barton ward from 1973 until 2006 and then the Haslingfield ward from 2012 to 2016, as an Independent Member.
His main interest was conservation and he served on the Council’s Conservation Committee from 1983 until its disbandment in 2001. He co-founded the Countryside Restoration Trust in 1993, which aimed to promote commercial yet wildlife-friendly farming, serving as its chairman until 2003.
He had a regular column in the Daily Telegraph and presented the BBC TV show One Man and His Dog. He played cricket for Comberton (as wicket-keeper) and football for Barton.
Our thoughts are with former Cllr Page’s family and friends.
