Friends and family of a former campsite warden are set to hold a summer fete to commemorate the first anniversary of his death.

Mike Hogan, former warden of Debden Campsite, died in September 2013 after a long battle with cancer.

Mr Hogan also volunteered for charity, Community Links, which works in deprived areas in the UK.

The charity will be holding the End of Summer fete in his memory.

The event on Monday will feature of a variety of fairground stalls, including a raffle, a tombola, sideshows, face painting and a bouncy castle.

Community Links co-founder Kevin Jenkins said: "Mike was a great guy, he always had a smile for everyone. He is very sadly missed.

"We hope to have nice weather and raise some money for the charity in Mike's memory."

The fete will be held at the Debden Campsite in Debden Green between 1pm and 4pm. All proceeds will go to Community Links charity.

Mike certainly was a great guy. I knew him as a loyal colleague and friend in the Loughton Labour Party during the 1980's and 1990's.

He played a major and important role in establishing the Loughton Town Council from 1996 onwards.

He was only ever interested in what he could do for the local community and was not interested in any sense of status as regards being a councillor.

Your former comrades have not and will not forget your comradeship and contribution to the community life of our town.
