It is with great sadness that Mid Dorset & North Poole Liberal Democrats must announce the passing of Cllr Pete Parrish yesterday. His death will be mourned by his colleagues, his family and his friends.
Although Pete had only been a councillor since May 2019, he had been a member of our team for much longer, and was involved in many community activities and events. We are all feeling shocked at this incredibly sad news and I have passed our condolences to his wife Tan and family. Whilst only a councillor for a short term Pete served his community with dedication for as a Canford Heath representative and on the Council’s licensing committee.
Sandra Moore, his ward colleague added “Pete will be sadly missed by his friends and colleagues in Canford Heath. He was well known for his litter picking skills and loved chatting to residents afterwards over a cup of tea. My heart goes out to his wife and family.
