It is with great sadness that we bring to you the news of the passing of Alderman Ben Ord.
Ben was a great servant to the people of Spennymoor since the 1980’s, serving as a Liberal Democrat councillor on Durham County Council, Sedgefield Borough Council and Spennymoor Town Council until as recently as 2013.
He continually pushed and worked hard to see improvements made to the area and was a leading voice for many years to have the Festival Walk shopping centre site regenerated.
Our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy go to his wife, daughter, extended family and close friends.
Rest in peace Ben.Leave a comment
