STATEMENT FROM TOWN MAYOR CLLR PETER CORKINDALE

On behalf of the people of Keighley, I am deeply sorry to hear of the death of Honorary Freeman of Keighley Capt. Sir Tom Moore. On behalf of the entire Council I offer our deepest condolences to Sir Tom’s family.

I had the honour of welcoming Sir Tom and his family to Keighley last July when he was awarded Freeman of the Town in recognition of his outstanding fundraising efforts. At the time I said Sir Tom had lifted the hearts of the nation at a time when it was most needed and even though he is no longer with us, I have no doubt his legacy and impact on the country will live on.

As a mark of respect I have asked for the flags in the Town Hall Square to be lowered to half mast. The Town Council will also open a virtual Book of Condolence on the Council website tomorrow. The messages will be published daily for all to see.

For anyone wishing to leave flowers, space will be available on the grass around Sir Tom’s plaque in the Town Hall Square.

May he rest in peace.
