We have been given the very sad news that Pat Parsons passed away on 22nd May following an operation.

She will be sadly missed by the many, many local people she helped while serving as a long-standing councillor for Hampton Wick. Pat also served the Hampton Wick Association as Chair in 2010/2011.

Tony Arbour, local councillor and London Assembly Member, writes:

“In all of the sixty years of the borough’s existence, there has only ever been one Mayor from Hampton Wick; and that was Pat Parsons, who died last week.

Pat was proud of this and the ‘Wick’ was proud of her.

Pat, who had had a distinguished career as a nurse, came to the borough in 1985 and after involving herself in local affairs, was elected to the Council in 1998, becoming Deputy Mayor in 2002 and Mayor two years later.

With three children and six beloved grand children she took a great interest in children, serving as Guide Commissioner and Sunday School teacher. She is particularly remembered for being a dinner lady whilst serving as a governor of Hampton Wick Infants’ School.

After retiring from the Council in 2010 she continued her involvement in village affairs becoming Chairman of the Hampton Wick Association in the same year.

A service to celebrate Pat’s life will be held at 1pm on Monday 10th June at the parish church of St. Mary, Church Street, Twickenham.

She will be much missed.”

Chris Drayson, ex-Chair and now Honorary President of the Hampton Wick Association, writes:

“I first came across Pat when I purchased a flat in Salamander Quay in Lower Teddington Road where Pat lived upstairs. We needed a Committee to help run the building. Typically she was the first to volunteer to help, and we worked together for many years.

She also helped with Richmond Aid (a charity that helps the disabled in the Borough) eventually becoming a Patron.

Pat did a huge amount for our village as councillor, as Mayor of the Borough and finally as the Chair of the Hampton Wick Association. Her work and public service are gratefully appreciated, and her wonderful sense of humour and her kindness will be missed by all of us in the village.”
