Mr Huson died in February

Friends and colleagues of the late Bryan Huson gathered on Monday for the internment of his ashes.

The former chairman of the Bexleyheath Conservative Association died in February after a short battle with illness.

Seven months on from his death, David Evennett MP led tributes to the keen photographer, who was an active member of the Conservatives for more than 70 years.

Mr Evennett described Mr Huson, who was 87 when he died, as “a great man and an inspiration to all who knew him,” speaking for his love for life and his commitment to the community.

During a short battle with illness which would ultimately claim his life, Mr Huson continued to chair the Christchurch ward Conservatives right up until his death.

Reverend Trevor Wyatt led the internment of his ashes in Christchurch garden with local councillors, party activists and friends all in attendance.
