Bedford has lost its leader and, in many respects, its visionary spirit. Frank Branston wanted the best for Bedford and he went about achieving his goals with vigour and purpose.
Over the years – and despite our political differences – Frank always had a willingness to hear a different point of view. I valued his directness and his entrepreneurial flair – both of which I shall sorely miss.
I met with Frank last three weeks ago, and his focus was very much on how, despite the recession, he could keep our community moving forward. At times like these, we badly needed his sense of purpose.
To Frank’s family and to his many friends across our town and beyond, my sincere condolences on his passing, and on this sad day, may our thoughts and prayers be with them.
