We announce the very sad news that Forum trustee and ex-Frome Vale councillor Bill Payne died in April this year.
He served both of the communities he was a member of (Frome Vale and Disabled people) for many years and will be greatly missed.
He became a Forum trustee after he retired from being a councillor, but was always an advocate for Disabled people. He was an active member of the Bristol and South-West local group and an ex-trustee of the Haemophilia Society.
Forum Manager, Laura, said: “Bill will be missed by all who knew him. He was a passionate campaigner for improving the lives of Disabled people and will be remembered as a gentle man, considerate of others ‘ needs, softly spoken, personable and a good listener. Our thoughts and sincere condolences to his wife Margaret, daughter Emily, and two grandchildren.”
