Cllr Stan Heggs receives Commendation


The Annual General Meeting of Corby & East Northants Conservative Association was held on Friday 24th March 2017 at Raunds Conservative Club. During the proceedings, the Chairman, Councillor Helen Harrison, acknowledged the splendid career of Councillor Stan Heggs.   Cllr Heggs will be standing down at the County Elections on the 4th May, but although retiring from front line council work after 16 years on Corby Borough Council and 12 years on Northamptonshire County Council, he continues with his voluntary work for the organisation. 

The Chairman had received a letter from the Prime Minister, which she asked to be passed on to Stan, in which she acknowledged his outstanding contribution to the community. Theresa May particularly mentioned remembering meeting Stan during a visit a few years ago.  

In recognition of his work, the members at the AGM agreed with the recommendation of the Management Committee that he should be made an honorary Vice-President of the Association in order that he could continue to be involved in the Executive Committee discussions in the future.
