Bill Johnson MBE

I have returned on the first train from London today in order that I can attend the funeral of the late Bill Jonson. a Councillor for over forty years, twice the Mayor, awarded the MBE and awarded the honour of being made a Freeman of the Borough; it was not for nothing he was known locally as ‘Mr Tottington’. Bill’s service to the people of Tottington and Bury was always conducted with dignity and humility. He was a committed Christian and he will be greatly missed by everyone particularly all the congregation at St. Anne’s Church in Tottington where the funeral will take place later today. A former Church Warden on two separate occasions I will be performing the same role today and if I can ever achieve a fraction of what the great Bill Johnson did I would be satisfied
