It was with sadness to hear of the passing of Bert Crane.
Bert was a remarkable man and the father and grandfather of our town.
He helped shape the town we are proud to call home.
I was honoured to serve with Bert the first time I sat on the council I was also proud to be a friend off his and enjoy a pint now and then and chew the fat over various topics.
I know my fellow councillors on both sides off the chamber who still sit or sat on the council have all been helped by Bert in advice and where we do well and go wrong .
RIP Bert. It was, and still is, a honour to be a friend and comrade of yours.
Cllr John Stanley, Crawley Borough Council (Lab, Ifield and Ifield West)
