Tribute to former Butlin’s chief
Following the death of Bryan Leaker, the former CEO of Butlin’s in Minehead (pictured), this week, a tribute has been paid by his former colleague on West Somerset District Council, Tim Taylor.
Tim said: “Bryan was an influential, colourful and leading member of West Somerset District Council. He was a powerful speaker in the council chamber who would often lead the direction of the debate and decisions.
“He was particularly good at raising support both within and outside the council for various community causes and projects which he often instigated or led. In particular he took a leading role in the establishment of the current Minehead Hospital, and campaigned strongly for it to be properly signposted.
“He used his previous background and many personal contacts to advantage.
“Bryan was a strong and engaging character who achieved many things for our local communities through his powerful presence and drive.”
