We were very sad to hear of the death of David Bradford, who served as a Labour councillor for Crome Ward for over 40 years (until 2019). Our thoughts are with his family and all who knew him.
David also served as Lord Mayor of Norwich in 1988/89, and has served in roles include cabinet profolio holder for social inclusion, chair of planning committee and chairman of the Norwich area museum’s committee. He was involved with numerous charities, including Norwich Crossroads and HAND (Help and Advocacy for Norfolk Disabled), The Hamlet Centre Trust, the Norwich Alzheimer’s Society and the Friends of Pricilla Bacon Lodge Hospice.
“David was passionate about helping people, many constituents benefitted from his work as a welfare rights specialist. He was a champion in promoting disability rights.
David was well known and well liked, at the city council and across Norwich.
He will be greatly missed and remembered fondly for his contribution to the city that he loved.”
