WORRIED councillors have wished a serving colleague well after revealing he has been suffering from Covid-19 for ‘a long time’.

At Wednesday’s (January 13) planning meeting, the chairman, councillor Haqeeq Dar (Labour: Wexham Lea) said councillor Roger Davis (Labour: Cippenham Green) has been suffering from Covid-19 and is still in hospital.

As Cllr Davis has missed three planning meetings in a row, members agreed to waive a letter informing the group leader of his absence given his circumstances.
