In announcing his father’s death, son Julian, said: “It is with great regret that we must announce the death of former Conservative Wisbech Town councillor Mr Neville William Frusher who has passed away aged 79 years old.

“Mr Frusher was the town councillor for the Waterlees Ward for four years and an active member of Wisbech in Bloom.”

The funeral service is being held at St Peter’s Church, Wisbech, on Friday November 9 at 10.30am.

Wisbech Town Council added their condolences, saying Mr Frusher was a “quiet, thoughtful man”.

They posted: “It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Neville Frusher, past councillor.

“A quiet, thoughtful man who worked hard for Waterlees In Bloom. Our thoughts and condolences go to Pauline, and his family and friends.”
