Remembering Mota Singh

Many will know by now that Mota Singh a member of our Association and former Mayor of Royal Leamington Spa has passed away.

In the early 70’s Mota shared a plot near Glebe Place with the late Dr. James Partridge. A while later Mota moved to a plot on area B where he gardened for over 30 years. Living at Sydenham this was most convenient. Until winter arrived Mota would often be seen with his son Jass working the plot.

Mota came to England from Rajasthan, India in 1963. He found work in local factories and for 28 years until he retired was a postman. He involved himself in many community groups and educational establishments along with local politics.

Mota was a kind, gentle, caring man, always ready to listen and on hand to offer quiet advice.

On behalf of the membership the Committee would like to offer our sincere condolences to Mota’s family and friends.
