Warren Flood

Last Tuesday was a sad day as I attended the funeral of Warren Flood, who died very unexpectedly the week before.

Warren had been a councillor for Pilkington Park in Whitefield for 12 years and a councillor in Moorside, Bury for 2 years. He worked as a case worker for Ivan Lewis MP and was genuinely popular with all who new him. As well as a dedicated socialist he was an ardent supporter of Bury FC and a lover of real ale. He really will be missed by many many friends.

His death is such a blow to Cath, who lost her mother recently and our thoughts are wit her.
More bad news in Bury came with the announcement of the death of Gordon Sharkey. Gordon had been a councillor for the old Whitefield Urban District Council and then a Bury District Councillor. A founder member of the Bury Labour League of Youth and a party member for over 50 years, Gordon will be sorely missed - another life long socialist!!!
