Shipston Town Council pays tribute to former Mayor, Alan Noyce

Everyone at Shipston Town Council was saddened to learn of the death of Alan Noyce early in the morning of 19th August.
Alan had a charismatic personality and was an active member of the town council for more than a dozen years, serving as Mayor for three terms in 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Alan worked tirelessly to improve the overall wellbeing of the town; he introduced the working party system, which has successfully spread the work-load between all councillors. Alan had a common sense approach and was a true ambassador for the town, raising the profile of Shipston all over Warwickshire and further afield.

Alan’s late wife Angela, who had been Mayor in 2004 and 2006, died of an illness very suddenly in 2009, two days before she was due to become Mayor. Alan stepped in to the breach to serve his third successive term.

Alan remarried in October 2012 to his wife Pat and resigned from the town council in 2014.

He was highly regarded throughout the town, and will be missed. Our thoughts are with his wife Pat, and all his family at this difficult time.Everyone at Shipston Town Council was saddened to learn of the death of Alan Noyce early in the morning of 19th August.
