It was with great sadness that I learned of the passing of former Wetherby Town Mayor Derek Nicholson.
As a councillor Derek served Wetherby Town Council for over forty years and remained throughout that time a proud resident of our town.
Many people will remember him walking around the town and sharing his robust views on the issues of the day.
Wetherby has lost a loyal son and my thoughts and prayers are with Derek’s wife Betty and their family at this sad time.
