LYMM Parish Council has agreed to place a plaque on one of the benches at Lymm Cross marking the contribution made to public life by the late Neville Woodyatt, who died on May 18.
A former local councillor, Mr Woodyatt, aged 87, had lived in Lymm since he was four and attended Lymm Grammar School before going on to study physics at Manchester University.
He served as a parish councillor for 28 years and was chairman in 1991.
Mr Woodyatt played soccer for Lymm Grammar School Old Boys and cricket for Lymm Oughtrington Park, where he captained the 2nd XI and eventually became club president, a position he still held at the time of his death.
He was also a member of Lymm Golf Club for 35 years.
As an active member of Lymm Grammar School Old Students Association he met his wife, Cllr Sheila Woodyatt, at the opening of the school swimming pool in 1957.
He also served as a school governor at two schools in Warrington.
