It is with sadness that Dawlish Town Council announces the passing of Councillor Terry Lowther on Saturday, 25 September 2021.

Councillor Lowther, a former Justice of the Peace, was first elected to the Town Council in 2011 representing Dawlish South West Ward, having won re-election in 2015, and most recently in 2019.

He served as the Mayor of Dawlish from 2013-14, and most recently was the Chairman of the Council’s Events Committee.

The Mayor of Dawlish, Councillor Val Mawhood said: “Councillor Terry Lowther was a long-serving member of Dawlish Town Council, and a much valued member of our community.

"Despite health issues, he nevertheless bravely continued to serve the Events Committee until very recently.

"On behalf of the Council, I offer my condolences to Councillor Lowther’s wife, Councillor Mary Lowther, and his wider family and friends”.

As a mark of respect, the Town Council’s flag will fly at half-mast at The Manor House until further notice.
