Welshpool’s longest serving town councillor has retired after 30 years’ service to the town.

Councillor John Corfield made his emotional departure on Wednesday night and received a commemorative certificate to mark his unbroken service to Welshpool.

He is a former Mayor of Welshpool and also served on the former Montgomeryshire Council, Powys County Council and on the town’s Chamber of Commerce. He is also a long-standing official and supporter of Welshpool Cricket Club.

Councillor Corfield reflected on the changes he had seen in Welshpool during his time as a councillor which include the by-pass, one-way system, supermarkets, the Flash Leisure Centre, Welshpool Hospital, the Scout Hut and described his pride at the Maesydre Recreation Ground being the best council facility in Wales.

Paying tribute to his fellow councillors and Town Clerk Robert Robinson Councillor Corfield described Welshpool Town Council as a “Can Do” organisation and praised the council for being proactive.

“We are a team working together for one objective – the good of Welshpool,” he said. “I consider myself lucky to have been born and bred in Welshpool. It’s a great little town with wonderful people in it.

“I consider it a privilege to have represented the people of Welshpool for so long. I have always done my best,” he added.
