Former Cllr Ben Ord

It is with deep sadness and regret that the Town Council advise that former Cllr Ben Ord has passed away.

Ben was a dedicated public servant representing the people of Spennymoor from the 1980’s, serving as a Liberal Democrat councillor on Durham County Council, Sedgefield Borough Council and Spennymoor Town Council until as recently as 2013.

The Council would like to send its condolences and sympathies to his wife, daughter, family and friends.

As a mark of respect the Town Flag is being flown at half-mast.
