It is with great sadness that the town has learned of the passing of John Kelly, ex-councillor and Mayor of Great Torrington.
John gave many years of service to Great Torrington. He worked as a local policeman and he was a long-standing town councillor, during which he held the position of Mayor in 1988, 1989, 1996 and 1997. John was also a keen bingo caller in his spare time and offered his services to other Mayors on several occasions to assist with their fundraising activities.
On behalf of the Town Council and the community of Great Torrington I offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends in their time of grief.
Councillor Doug Smith, Mayor of Great Torrington
