Cllr Bob Ousby

How sad to hear that Cllr Bob Ousby has died.

He had a stroke apparently. This followed a period of ill health including time in hospital when a car crushed his leg. But Bob carried on working for local people.

We used to see Bob struggling into the Council Chamber, or into other meetings. It clearly was a struggle, but Bob was determined to do the work he'd been electd to do.

He was one of life's gentlemen too - always ready to help or to cheer you up.

He will be really missed, by his colleagues and his constituents in Yew Tree ward.

His Funeral mass will be at St John's Church in Tuebrook at 11.30am on Friday 22 February, followed by a reception at the church.
