Former councillor to receive borough's highest honour
David Oram will be presented with the freedom of the Royal Borough



A long-serving councillor will be recognised for nearly four decades of service to the local authority.

David Oram will become the latest Freeman of Windsor and Maidenhead at Windsor Guildhall on Friday.

He retired last year after working in local government since 1964.

He will be the 15th person to receive the honour, joining the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and England rugby world cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward.

He said he was ‘deeply moved and somewhat overawed’ about the accolade.

Royal Borough Mayor, Cllr Colin Rayner, said: "This is our opportunity to pay tribute to an exceptional man who dedicated more than half his life to the Royal Borough and its residents.

"Honesty and integrity hallmarked his work and he is a worthy recipient of the council’s highest honour."
