THE late Jock Fraser was remembered with a minute's silence at the Corsham Town Council meeting on Monday.

Cllr Jock Fraser died aged 73 on April 13 having served as a town councillor for 28 years.

He had also chaired the council four times over the years and was a respected member of the community.

Jock and his wife, Jill, 57, were born and brought up in London and moved to Wiltshire from Reading in 1978.

The couple brought up their two children, Alexandra, 26, and James, 23, in the county.

He was a keen rugby fan and enjoyed watching Corsham Rugby Club play as well as serving on its committee as well as spend a period as governor of Corsham School in the past.

The meeting also heard that the Nationwide Building Society Pop-up Branch will be withdrawn its at the end of May due to diminishing demand.

The service has operated from the Town Hall since shortly after Lloyds Bank closed their Corsham branch.
