It is with great sadness that we report the death of Stephen Williamson on Monday (3 March 2014).
Steve was a contributor to South Leeds Life both under his own name and as ‘Old Bamber’ having attended our first community reporters course. He was also heavily involved behind the scenes as Secretary of the South Leeds Life Group, taking a lead on securing funding and helping to plan for the future.
His loss will be felt across South Leeds. He brought his great energy to many organisations including the Church in Cottingley, Beeston Festival, the Labour Party and Holbeck Neighbourhood Plan.
Our thoughts are with his family to whom we send our condolences.
UPDATE: The family have announced the arrangements for Steve’s funeral. It will take place at St Mary’s Church, Town Street, Beeston on Tuesday 18 March at 2pm.
The family have asked people not to wear black and grey, no flowers please, but there will be a collection.
