Roy Oldham

My condolences to the family of Cllr Roy Oldham, ward councillor for Longendale and former leader of Tameside Council who passed away this morning.
Roy who was 76, was leader of Tameside Council for 30 years until this year, a councillor on Tameside Council from its creation in 1974, and a councillor on the Longdendale Urban District Council from 1965 until 1974.
Whilst there may be some who haven’t agreed with Roy and some of the policies he has followed over the years, no one can have doubted his commitment to the people of Tameside and in particular the people of the Longendale area which he represented for over 40 years.
