AFTER 30 years of service, former councillor Mike Ogden has retired as Secretary of the March Men's Branch of the North East Cambridgeshire Conservative Association.
Mr Ogden called time on three decades with the association at their annual meeting this week.
He said: “I am pleased and proud that I have given the best years of my life to the Conservative Party in my capacity as a local councillor, past divisional chairman, canvasser, school governor and conference delegate.
“In the constituency the Conservatives hold almost all county, district and town council seats. The Mayor of March is also a Conservative member. Most important of all is that we have a Fenland MP.
“I have been March Men’s Branch Secretary for almost 30 years and I take this opportunity to thank the branch members for all their loyalty and support and wish the new Branch Secretary all success in the future.”
Chairman Councillor Kit Owen proposed a vote of thanks for Mr Ogden’s years of service and welcomed Councillor Gavin Philpott as the new Branch Secretary.
