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.”
