UPLYME Parish Council has paid tribute to one of its members, Cllr Brian Mason, who died last Saturday.
Cllr Brian Mason, who served as a navigator on Vulcan bombers during the Cold War, was a member of Uplyme Parish Council for more than 30 years and previously served as chairman.
Announcing the news on its website and social media, the council wrote: “It is with regret that we have been informed that a very long standing member of Uplyme Parish Council, Cllr Brian Mason, sadly passed away on Saturday evening.
“Over the many years Cllr Brian Mason served on Uplyme Parish Council he dedicated his time to help and support the Community of Uplyme. “Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest in peace Cllr Brian Mason.”
