A plaque to commemorate an ex-councillor who dedicated his life to the community has been unveiled.
The bench plaque was unveiled for Colin Feeley, who passed away earlier this year, in a special ceremony attended by dozens of friends and family members on Sunday, November 16.
Colin, of Bolton Avenue, was known locally as ‘Mr Huncoat’ due to his tireless work for the community as a Labour councillor for more than ten years and his work as a nurse at Calderstones Hospital in Whalley.
He died peacefully at home surrounded by his family in May aged 67, following a short battle with bone and liver cancer.
Colin’s widow Gail attended the plaque unveiling at the football fields off Bolton Avenue and thanked all who attended.
Gail, 69, said: “I am delighted that a lot of people came out to see the plaque. Colin did a lot for Huncoat he worked his socks off, he just loved helping people.
“I know he would have been delighted the plaque and all the people that came along.”
Huncoat councillor Dave Parkins, who knew Colin for more than 30 years, paid tribute to a ‘great friend’. He said: “Colin was a great friend and he did so much for the community, this plaque is a way to remember him permanently.”
