A tribute to Jack Williams and the Mayor's eulogy

Hungerford Town Council


Hungerford Town Council wishes to pay its respects to Jack Williams who sadly passed away on the 19th February.

Jack's contribution to the town was second to none. He was declared “Hungerford and District Citizen of the Century” in 2000 in a poll run by The Adviser. He was a town councillor for 45 years, Mayor for 5, Trustee of Town and Manor for 30 years, Governor of JOG School for 20 years, 15 of which as Chair. His voluntary work extended to Methodist Church Deacon and Stalwart, President of Hungerford branch of RBL since 2004, founder of Hungerford Twinning Association, and in the past represented Hungerford Town Football Club and was President of Hungerford Cricket Club.

In 2013 Hungerford Town Council was delighted to present Jack with a “Freedom of the Town Award”.

Jack will be greatly missed, and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
