Long-serving councillor passes away

The Royal Borough has expressed deep sadness at the death on Sunday (26 August) of Cllr Wilson Hendry.

A native of Scotland, Cllr Hendry had been a borough councillor since May 1991, representing residents in the Pinkneys Green ward first as a Liberal Democrat until 2010 and then as a Conservative.

Throughout his time on the council he served on many different panels and committees, particularly relating to planning, licensing and rights of way. He was chairman of the licensing panel from 2004 to 2007 and vice chairman of Maidenhead development control panel in 2003/04.

David Oram, interim chief executive, said: “On behalf of council staff I would like to express our sincere sympathy to Cllr Hendry’s wife and family. This is very distressing news for everyone who knew and worked with Wilson during his many years of local government service.”

Cllr Hendry is survived by his wife, Janet, and two grown up children.

Full details of the funeral arrangements will be released as soon as they are available.
