The Parish Council was saddened to hear that Alan Eade, Parish Councillor for 25 years until he stepped down in 2012, has passed away.
Alan was well known in the village, a founder member of the Village Society in 1979 and being involved in many local renovation projects – including the pump on The Green, the School Hill “Jubilee” seat, the Histon Giant’s grave and most recently the agricultural pump renovation at the Recreation Ground.
He had a passionate interest in village planning and the preservation of the best of our surrounding environment.
Many will have seen examples of Alan’s marvellous artist skills. For examples, take a look at the Network Book cover showing his interpretations of many local scenes in Histon and Impington.
Alan had just reached the milestone age of 90 and, indeed, was able to enjoy a celebration with family and friends only the weekend before he passed away.
The Council joins in sending heartfelt condolences to his widow Inger and his family at this very sad time. He has left a true legacy to us all.
