Everyone at Dover Town Council was saddened to hear of the death of former Councillor George Allt.

George was a member of the Council from 1997 to 2007, and served as Town Mayor in 2003-4. George is remembered for his enthusiasm for the work of the Council, his sense of fun and ability to put all who met him at their ease. Under George’s leadership the Council undertook the bulk of the work that saw Maison Dieu House restored and returned to the Town’s ownership. George also promoted and championed the placing of plants and colourful flowers in the Town Centre, a tradition which the Town Council has maintained and which has become such a well-loved feature of Dover in recent years.

Our thoughts are with George’s family and friends at this sad time.
