Old Marston parish councillor Roy Jones who was due to stand at next month’s elections has died, aged 80.
Mr Jones, a bellringer at St Nicholas’ Church for 70 years, died on Monday.

“He was also part of the Mortimer Hall committee and he often represented the parish council at different meetings.”
