Brackley Town Former Mayor - Geoff Wilkins 1951-2022

Brackley Town Former Mayor - Geoff Wilkins 1951-2022

Geoff Wilkins was born in Brackley in 1951 and educated in the town. After leaving school, he joined the army and served in the Military Police spending time in both Northern Ireland and in Cyprus as part of the UN peacekeeping force. On discharge he returned to live in Brackley where his employment included investigating benefit fraud for Cherwell District Council and owning a pet shop on the High Street.

Geoff joined Brackley Town Council and served as Town Mayor from 1996 to 1997. He served on all three of the council's committee and had a special interest in planning. As a council nominee, he became a trustee of the Brackley United Feoffee Charity where his local knowledge and his forensic consideration of applications for assistance were of great benefit; Geoff stepped down as a trustee only last year.

Geoff died in Katharine House Hospice on 31 May. He was a great servant to the town; we mourn his loss and send condolences to his wife, his family and his friends.
