The Liberal Democrat group on Cardiff Council is saddened to hear of the passing of Cllr Tim Davies, Conservative Councillor for Whitchurch and Tongwynlais.
We had been delighted to see Cllr Davies at the Annual Council meeting last month, after a period of absence, and hoped this marked a long-term recovery from his recent ill-health.
It is, therefore, deeply shocking to hear this news.
Tim’s long record of public service points to someone with a passion and commitment to his residents, his community and his city.
That passion and commitment was clear to anyone who heard him speak in Council: his clear views, his honesty and his powerful oratory, sprinkled with good humour, made him a valued and popular colleague.
We offer our deepest condolences to his family, his friends and the other members of the Conservative group. We know he will be a huge miss to them all.
