A former Mayor of Eastleigh, Cllr Tony Noyce has passed away after a short illness

He was the sitting Liberal Democrat Councillor for West End North, which he had represented for eight years, and had been a West End parish Councillor since 2003.

Cllr Noyce had held the office of Mayor last year.

The Leader of Eastleigh Borough Council, Cllr Keith House paid a tribute saying:

“Tony was passionate about his community in West End and worked relentlessly on the Borough and Parish Councils.  Just as importantly he was a nice chap too.  His popularity was such that he was last year’s Mayor.

Tony’s short but devastating illness has been a shock to everyone and most of all of course his family who we are all thinking about at today’s news.”

Deputy Mayor makes some dough!
