Fenland councillors paused twice yesterday (Tuesday) to hold a minute’s silence.
Firstly, they were invited by chairman Alex Miscandlon to a observe a minute’s silence to remember Capt Sir Tom Moore.
Cllr Miscandlon described him as an “incredible and inspirational gentleman”. He reminded colleagues that Capt Tom had connections “both personally and professionally with this area”.
Once the tribute ended, councillor Will Sutton felt that it ought to have included those residents of Fenland who had also lost their lives to Covid-19.
“I obviously absolutely support a minute’s silence for Capt Tom,” he said. “Not only was he a resident of Fenland but also a resident of my ward – he lived seven doors from me.
