The funeral of Cllr Robert Scrimshaw will take place at Parson Drove Church on Friday (18) at 2pm.

Mr Scrimshaw was 56 when he was found dead last Saturday at his Murrow home – not 60 as incorrectly stated in last week’s Citizen. A Peterborough United supporter, he had been due to attend the match.

He was a Fenland District councillor for Parson Drove and Wisbech St Mary. He was also a member of Parson Drove and Wisbech St Mary Parish councils.

He leaves a son Andrew.

Tributes were paid to him by several colleagues, including Fenland Council leader Alan Melton who called him a “very conscientious councillor” and Wisbech St Mary Parish Council chairman Brian Payne who said he was “enthusiastic and knowledgeable”.
