It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of one of our beloved former Mayors, Roger Galletley, Thursday, 17th of August 2023, on what would have been his 81st Birthday.

Today, our community mourns the loss of a remarkable individual who dedicated his time and efforts to serving the town of Usk.

Roger's contributions as Mayor have left a lasting impact on our community. His commitment, passion, and tireless work for the betterment of Usk will always be remembered. He was a true leader, always putting the needs of our town and its people first.

Roger served on Usk Town Council for 42 years and was Mayor of Usk five times. During his tenure Roger played a vital role in shaping Usk and ensuring its growth and prosperity. His dedication to public service was an inspiration to us all. He will be greatly missed, not only by those who had the privilege of working with him but also by the entire community.
