Remembering Austin Mitchell

Austin Mitchell was appointed High Steward of North East Lincolnshire by full Council at its meeting on 24 September 2015.

The role of High Steward of North East Lincolnshire was first awarded in 2008 to John Ross MBE. The origins of the role date back to 1521 under the title of High Steward of The Borough of Great Grimsby.

The first holder of the role was John Heneage in 1521 and other notable recipients include; George Pelham, Sir Edward Ayscough, The 1st Earl of Yarborough and Sir Walter Womersley to name a few of the prominent local names who have held the role. Since 2011 the role had been left vacant following the sad passing of John Ross MBE.

The role was awarded to those who have contributed to the community of North East Lincolnshire. The role of High Steward is the highest honour North East Lincolnshire Council can award.

In tribute, Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “Austin was the Member of Parliament for Great Grimsby for nearly 40 years (1977 to 2015). During that time he served the area with conviction and passion, and was respected by many, not just those in local politics. He was a familiar face in the area, and definitely found unique ways to speak up for local people!”

The Worshipful the Mayor of the Borough of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor David Hasthorpe said: “From gracing our screens on Calendar to representing our town in Parliament, or attending one of many functions in Great Grimsby, Austin certainly made his presence felt and always had a ready quip or word of encouragement for all.”
