John Kershaw 1950-2016

We are sorry to announce that John Kershaw, Trustee of Civic Voice and a long standing Chairman of Manchester Civic Society and Chair of the North West Association of Civic Societies died suddenly on November 19th in Manchester.

John was appointed to the Civic Voice board on the 20th October 2012 and was the Chair of Constitution Sub-Committee (2012/13) and the Chair of out Membership Sub-Committee (2015).

We send our condolences to John's family and friends, to NWACTS and to Manchester Civic Society. John will be missed by many and the Civic Voice Board of Trustees will be meeting in January to consider how we can recognise John's contribution to the civic movement. We are still awaiting details of funeral arrangements for those who may wish to attend and will advise when known.
