    Remembering Councillor Peter Hindle


    2019 – Peter at the Hub project launch with his wife Carol, a  volunteer Librarian.

    Today, we say goodbye to a great man who has enriched my life and others with his generosity and his kindness. Councillor Peter Hindle was laid to rest at a private service with family and close friends. You may not know him personally, but as an Addingham resident you will have benefited from his commitment in making the community a better place to live and work.  The first of his many accomplishments was the restoration of the Old Band O’le on Silsden Road, where he spent a lot of time keeping chickens and growing vegetables. As a builder by trade, we have had many jobs completed around the village thanks to his skills and experience. Coupled with this, he has turned his hand to anything that was asked of him, from replacing fence posts on allotments to cleaning the flagpole. Recently, along with his fellow Councillor and lifelong friend Councillor Michael Flesher, he undertook the installation of many replacement benches around the village.

    His work with the Council was not limited maintenance and handy work; Peter took his Councillor role seriously and viewed it as a privilege to serve. His contributions to lively discussions were always shared with a calm head. His recollections of D-day landings in our latest Newsletter speak volumes as to the kind of man he was.

    Until recently Peter was the Chairman of Addingham United Charities, a role he valued and was deeply committed to.

    He really was the very best of us.  Our thoughts and condolences go to his wife Carol and his family.

    Rest in Peace Peter, thank you for your service.

    Chairman, Addingham Parish Council
