End of an Era

I returned home last night to hear of the passing on of one of my electorate. Sir Arthur Marshall was 103. For nearly 50 years he ran Marshalls Aerospace - our largest employer and a driving force behind the Cambridge economy. For generations Marshalls has taken local apprentices and turned them into world class engineers. He has supported his local village for decades.

Only last year aged 102 Sir Arthur chaired a meeting regarding a controversial planning application. An inspiration.
