ROBERT BUCKLAND'S COLUMN: We are making checks to ensure Swindon people are safe in high rise homes

Swindon Advertiser | News - June 21, 2017 - 14:01
I was very sad to hear the news about the death of Lord Joffe. He was an international figure who without fear or favour represented Nelson Mandela and other leading political figures in apartheid South Africa. His work for charities such as Oxfam is well known but it is his enthusiasm for Swindon that shone through in his later years, after a long association with our insurance industry in a place which he made his home. Joel was someone who I looked up to and who was an invaluable source of advice. We will all miss him very greatly. My condolences go to Vanetta and their family.
