We are sad to announce the death of Councillor Ray Oliver.
Councillor Oliver who had been unwell for sometime joined the
council in 1986 and represented Kempston North. In 1990-1991 he was
elected Mayor of the Borough.

“It is with great sadness that I learned today of the death of
councillor Ray Oliver. Ray’s passing will be a great loss to the
Councillors and staff that he worked with over his many years as a
councillor. We will all miss the hard work he put into getting the
best for the borough and his dedication towards those he
represented in Kempston.
