Working hard for the people of West Lancashire

15/06/07 MP Rosie comments on passing of Arthur Tennant

“Arthur’s passing is very sudden and tragic news. My heart goes out to Arthur’s family at this sad time. Arthur selflessly dedicated many years’ service and hard work to his local community and to the Labour Party. I am honoured to have had him as a friend and a colleague. Arthur Tennant was a truly great man. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.”

“I last saw Arthur last Thursday on election day when as usual he opened up his house as a campaign office. Even though he was ill Arthur still enjoyed being part of election day, which always gave him a real buzz. Arthur showed me his Honorary Citizenship from Up Holland Parish Council which was hanging proudly above his bed along with his letter from the Prime Minister. He was delighted to have been honoured and will be remembered for all his years’ service to the people of Up Holland and the Labour Party.”
