TRIBUTES have been paid to a councillor who died suddenly at his home last week.
Boston Borough Councillor Paul Mould had been due to attend a charity fundraising event held by the Mayor, Councillor Colin Brotherton on Friday evening and a minute's silence was observed at the event.
Cllr Brotherton, said: "I was very sad to hear of the sudden death of Councillor Mould. I had been looking forward to chatting with him at the event on Friday night.
"He was Boston born and bred and maintained his loyalty to the town, living and working here and representing his ward. He was a published author, built up his own publishing business and was always working on new projects. He always had the greater interest of Boston and the borough at heart.

"He was known as an authority on Boston's history, with many interesting articles published over the years. He was a lifelong follower of Boston United and a true Bostonian through and through. We will all miss him."
Councillor Mould was educated at the town's Staniland School and Boston Grammar School and worked as a reporter at the Boston Guardian before joining the family bakers and grocers business.
Fellow Staniland ward councillor, Councillor Yvonne Gunter, said: "He was a very private man but we used to chat when we worked together on ward business. We held our ward surgeries together.
"He had a very good sense of humour – very dry – and we got on very well. It was a great shock to hear he had died so suddenly."
Councillor Mould had a keen interest in cinema and sports and nostalgia columns for local newspapers. He was also a member of MENSA .
Councillor Mould had been due to join the consultation team in the Market Place today to help with the Have Your Say survey. However as a mark of respect this consultation session will be postponed until Wednesday, March 6 from 10am to 2pm.
