We are quite stunned by the loss of Councillor Wendy Congreve, who died on Tuesday night. Our first thoughts are with her family, her children and grandchildren.
Wendy was thrilled to return to local politics in 2017, having previously represented Lakeside on South Glamorgan Council.
She took her roles on the Planning Committee and School Governor Selection Panel seriously, but most loved working in her community, together with her ward colleague Councillor Bablin Molik who will feel this loss deeply.
Her involvement through community groups and, formerly, as Chair of Governors at Cardiff High School meant she was an important local presence.
We'll remember her for the courage she showed in the face of her recent illness, her gentle courtesy and her fiercely independent mind.
