Happy Birthday Archie!
Not The Barnet Times is delighted to congratulate former councillor Archibald Smith, who has just celebrated his 100th Birthday.
At the last council meeting, Mayor of Barnet Brian Coleman tabled a motion paying tribute to Archie’s distinguished service and David Cameron also praised the centenarian, saying: “You can certainly be proud of all you've achieved for the residents in your period of office.”
Archie’s daughter Geraldine told the Barnet Times: “He never claimed expenses as a councillor because he thought that his role was to serve the community and he didn't think it was right. His whole mindset was to help other people.”
Come back Archie. We need you!
