Freedom of the Parish for retiring Councillor – Mr Ollerenshaw

Dear Residents

Uttoxeter Rural Parish Council presented Mr Tom Ollerenshaw with the Honorary Award of Freedom of the Parish at the Parish Council meeting held on 6th June 2023.

Mr Ollerenshaw retired from the Parish Council at the elections in May 2023, after serving the residents for over 17yrs. This award is in recognition of the eminent service rendered by Mr Ollerenshaw to the Council and the residents of Uttoxeter Rural Parish.

Vice Chairman Cllr Nick Crosby presented the award at the meeting and Mr Ollerenshaw thanked the Council for both the award and everything they have achieved over the last 17 years for the residents. Mr Ollerenshaw commented, “It has been a privilege to serve my community on the Council and watch the changes that have taken place as a result of the Council listening to residents and providing, where possible, all requests made. I leave the Council knowing that the current Councillors will continue the good work”.

Cllr Whittaker (Borough) and Cllr Atkins (County) were at the meeting and asked for their thanks to be recorded in the meeting minutes, as they have worked with Mr Ollerenshaw on many of the projects that have been completed and respect his commitment to the community he lives in.

As a result of Mr Ollerenshaw retirement, the Parish Council has vacancies at present and residents are encouraged to visit the Parish Council website to find out how they can get involved –
