BRA President, Peter Seaward reports:
It is with great sadness that we wish to inform residents that well known village community supporter Michael Anderson passed away just before Christmas 2023.
Michael was a wonderful and very long serving friend of all of us here in Bookham. For many years he a was Liberal Councillor for Bookham, and during that time was also a Leader of Mole Valley District Council. He became a member of the BRA Committee and collaborated with us all for well over 20 years. He always listened to any issues we had and whenever possible offered and found positive help and solutions. For a number of years, he was also the BRA President
He was also a staunch supported of Leatherhead Football Club and well into his eighty’s would find his way to encourage the Tanners especially when playing at home. In his later years, the dreadful disease of Alzheimer’s took its toll. We all will remember him for all he did in so many ways for Bookham and will be much missed.
Our thoughts are with Anne his beloved wife who looked after him so well in his final years,
