It is with great sadness that we announce Councillor Sam Rahmouni passed away last week. 

Sam was first elected to Woodley Town Council in 1999, when he stood for election in Coronation West Ward and remained for the duration of his time as a Town Councillor.

Cllr Rahmouni was an active member of the Town Council and was on several committees during his time including, most recently, the Planning & Community Committee.

He also served as Deputy Town Mayor for the Municipal Year 2017-18 and Woodley Town Mayor 2018-19.

Woodley Town Council Leader, Cllr Keith Baker, knew Sam for many years and comments:

“I have known Sam for over a decade and found him very much a man of the people. His passion for helping Woodley residents was second to none. As a Town Councillor he was always willing to offer his services to the Town Council in whatever capacity was required. During his career he was both a Borough and a Town Councillor reaching the pinnacle of being Woodley Town Mayor. His activities, on behalf of Woodley residents, was always carried out in a very quiet way shunning any publicity. 

“Outside of his political career, he had a passion for the pub, with many regulars of the Chequers knowing him well. The other passion was at Christmas time when he religiously created jars and jars of pickled onions, which were delicious. I will certainly miss him as a friend, a political colleague, a fellow pub goer and a provider of great pickled onions. He had a heart of good and will be greatly missed by all.”

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
