Stan Wade 1932-2021

 

It is with great sadness we report the death of retired Councillor Stan Wade.


Stan served the community of Hythe and Dibden as a New Forest District councillor for 36 years and a Hythe and Dibden Parish councillor for 32 years, he served as Chairman of both.  There were many projects he was involved with over the years, he helped start the Citizens Advice Bureau in Hythe, set up the Hythe Community Association procuring some old buildings for it from Esso called “ Stan’s shed”. He was a big supporter of the Fire Station and was involved with the major refurbishment of the Ewart Play Area, he also helped set up Age Concern in Hythe and the Horrill Centre in Dibden.

However what he was best known for was helping the people of Hythe & Dibden with their issues and "his heart of gold, vast intelligence and cheeky sense of humour". His legacy carries on in many ways not least of which is passing his desire to help the community on to his son Cllr Malcolm Wade and his Grandson Cllr Alex Wade, both of whom served on the Parish Council alongside him in his final term before retiring.

Stan had been ill for a number of years from an unrelated condition but became a victim of Covid19 and died on Tuesday morning.
