Town's popular and long-serving solicitor has dies

IAN Campbell, a popular and long-serving solicitor based in Newbury, died peacefully at the weekend surrounded by his family.

He first represented clients at Newbury Magistrates’ Court as a newly qualified solicitor at Charles Hoile in 1975, where a book of condolence has been opened (see below for details).

Since then he has appeared in around 130 magistrates’ courts up and down the country and represented thousands of defendants.

Colleagues, friends and former clients are all mourning the passing of one of life's true gentlemen and online tributes have highlighted his kindly manner and compassion.

Mr Campbell, a devout Christian who was a stalwart of his local church community, is survived by his wife, Erica, two children and three grandchildren.

The book of condolence is available to sign at the offices of Charles Hoile above White Stuff opposite the Town Hall in Newbury.

For a full report and tributes, see this Thursday's Newbury Weekly News.

    Where to start with Ian? many people will have read court reports that will have included "Ian Campbell defending". My first contact with Ian and his family will have been through his quiet but devout faith as an elder with Glendale Community Church 27 years ago. Ian's humanity and endless capacity for an understanding of our frailties impressed everyone that knew him. I was lucky to have spent some time in his company whilst walking the Ridgeway and walking on the Isle of Wite. His considerable intellect coupled with his profound humanity made for a concoction that equalled trust, integrity and a soladirity with what was right. A few short years ago I stood and chatted with Ian in Northbrook Street. He had just retired and he offered a few words of wisdom about how to approach retirement which were never put off what you want to do until after the summer, after Christmas, after Easter or so on but to do it today. Ian did things today. Condolences to his loved ones and for Newbury
