Adult social work councillor has dies suddenly while on holiday
Hanworth councillor Alan Browne has died suddenly while visiting family in Canada. Cllr Browne was borough mayor from 2004 to 2005 and chaired the adult social care and housing overview and scrutiny panel.
He also sat on the management committees of the Birch Hill and Hanworth Community Centres and was a strong supporter of Crowthorne disabled people’s charity The Ark Trust.
Cllr Chris Turrell, leader of Bracknell Town Council said: “Alan was never slow to speak out, sometimes trenchantly, on issues which he felt strongly.
“He was a highly effective representative of all the various bodies he served on.”
