Tributes following the death of Councillor Simon Cronin
PATROL is sorry to report the death of Joint Committee member Councillor Simon Cronin of Worcester City Council, following a short illness.
Councillor Cronin served as Councillor for Worcester’s Nunnery Ward since 2007 and had recently been re-elected. He was active in a wide range of issues relating to the Council’s licensing and regulatory functions.
He sat on the PATROL Adjudication Joint Committee since 2014 and was a regular attendee at meetings.
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Chair of PATROL, said: ‘Simon will be greatly missed by everyone at PATROL – he was a truly wonderful person and a great team player. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and colleagues at the Council.’
Managing Director of Worcester City Council, David Blake, said: ‘On behalf of all of the staff at Worcester City Council, I would like to offer our condolences to Simon’s family, friends and loved ones. Simon was respected and well-liked by many of the staff who worked with him over the years. During an age when politics can get a bit heated, Simon was always the calm voice of reason and his warm and friendly approach will be greatly missed by everyone. We would often stop and chat when we bumped into each other on the High Street and it is incredibly sad that Worcester has lost such a kind and dedicated politician.’
