East Hampshire District Council has paid tribute to Cllr Nigel Wren, who passed away last week.
Cllr Wren was the Ward Councillor for Clanfield and Finchdean since his election in 2016 and was a member of the Community Forum (Clanfield, Horndean and Rowlands Castle).
Gill Kneller, Chief Executive at East Hampshire District Council, said: “It is with great sadness that we have learned of Nigel’s passing.
“He was a popular and exemplary councillor who always fought for his residents and took his duties and responsibilities as a councillor very seriously.
“We have sent a letter of condolence to his family to let them know they are in our thoughts at this difficult time.”
In December Cllr Wren donated four high-backed chairs for the oncology ward in Queen Alexandra Hospital, using money from his councillor grant fund, where he had spent time last year.
