Nigel Beard

It is with sadness that we have to report that Nigel Beard has died after some years in a nursing home. Nigel was a longstanding member of ours and came to local events with Jennie whenever they could. He had been the MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford and lived in Pyrford.
Nigel was a staunch defender of standards in the party and quick to comment whenever we looked like going off the rails, and both he and Jennie often signed nominations for our candidates too. He will be greatly missed.
