Cllr Ray Bowker MBE

Deepest Sympathies for a Local Giant


It is with the deepest sadness that we received the news of Councillor Ray Bowker's passing.

One of Trafford's longest serving Councillors, he served his community for 43 years

with distinction and grace.

Ray served on almost all the committees of Trafford Council as well as many school Governorships

and with Timperley Boys Brigade.


A lifelong liberal, a democrat and always independently minded, Ray served as

Trafford's Millenial Mayor and was immensely proud to be honored by Her Majesty the Queen

with an MBE for Service to the local community.


Ray was highly respected across the political spectrum.

He leaves behind a sublime example for anybody aspiring to serve in Local Government.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
