 George Taylor:- Chairman 2014 - 2018
I am very sad to have to report that Arnside Parish Council has suffered the loss of its Chairman.
Councillor George Taylor passed away after a short illness on the 2nd December.
 He had been Chairman of the Parish Council for four years and during that time has been passionate about serving the community of Arnside.  He led the Council with dedication to duty and has overseen improvements to the promenade, Cemetery and Playing Field during his term of office.
 The thoughts of the Parish Council are with his family and he will be much missed by all his colleagues on the Council. 
 Cllr George Taylor
