Council leader Steven North is inviting residents who wish to pay their respects to sign the book.

Cllr North said: “Glenn was a positive force and influence – and a good listener for anyone who wanted his time.

“He will be missed by many.”

And he added: “It’s important that the district has an opportunity to express its loss at this difficult time.”

The book is available for signing in reception at the council’s offices in Cedar Drive, Thrapston, during normal opening hours.

It will be available until Wednesday, December 13, after which it shall be passed on to the Harwood family on behalf of the local community.

The flag at the council is flying at half-mast as a mark of respect.

Councillors and officers have already signed the book.
