Lymington Times – 27 April 2018
Many readers will have been saddened to see your report (A & T, 13 April) of the death of Cllr Wappet. Bob was a pillar of our community, with an outstanding record of service on both Fawley Parish and New Forest District Councils.
People like Bob are the backbone of society, and the Conservative Party locally also benefited greatly from his support, his enthusiasm and his kindness over so many years.
In my own role as MP, I knew that he could always be relied upon: he will be missed, both as a colleague and as a friend.
