It is with immense sadness that we announce that Charles Myers, former Liberal Democrat councillor and group leader, has passed away after a long period of ill health.
Charles served as councillor for Pilgrims Hatch for twenty years before he retired in 2007. He leaves behind his wife Pauline, who also served as a councillor in Brentwood, and two adult sons. Our thoughts are with Pauline and their friends and family at this sad time.
Involved with Brentwood Liberal Democrats for over thirty years, he will be a sad loss to the party and much missed by his friends and colleagues. He was an active campaigner until the very end, even helping our Shenfield by-election with her nomination paperwork just three weeks ago and being as involved as he could in all our campaigns.
From 1996-97 he proudly served as Mayor of Brentwood.
Cllr Barry Aspinell, Group Leader, said:
"First and foremost, Charles was a gentleman and a kind man. He was a liberal to his very core and was supportive of us all, always willing to offer advice and assistance.
"The party has lost one of its very best, but for us, we have lost a friend."
