Town Council Statement

20 April 2022

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Cllr Amanda Carter-Philpott passed
away over the Easter weekend.

Amanda was a committed and thoughtful councillor who worked tirelessly to
champion and support our residents, in particular people with disabilities or facing
the threat of violence.

Amanda made a massive impact on this council in a short period of time. Amanda’s
dedication and hard work led to us becoming the first council in Milton Keynes to
gain White Ribbon accreditation and many other local councils followed her

Amanda brought lots of new energy to our council and championed the wellbeing of
our residents, ensuring everyone in our community had a voice. Amanda always
made sure that she shared her views on any subject and she gave her all to
everything she did. Her sense of humour will also be missed at our meetings.

Amanda’s passing is a huge loss to our council and our community. She was truly
admired by councillors and staff alike. The council was only part of Amanda’s work
and there are many people who are living better lives today because of her. Amanda
was an inspiration and her impact and legacy in our local community will continue.
All councillors and officers send their deepest condolences to Amanda’s family and
friends at this very sad time.

We were very proud to have Amanda as a councillor for Bletchley and Fenny
