Leigh-on-Sea Town Council has just been informed of the very sad news that past Leigh Town Councillor Mike Dolby passed away peacefully this morning – Thursday 5th November.
Mike was an incredibly prominent resident in our town and helped form the Town Council serving the town's residents from its inception in 1996 to 2002 and then again from 2007 to 2011. He was also Chairman of the Town Council from May 1998 to May 2000.
Even when Mike was not serving on Council, he always kept a close eye on us attending the Annual Community Meetings and our town events. He regularly popped in to the Community Centre for a chat with the Town Clerk and he will be sorely missed.
The flag at the Community Centre will be flying at half-mast today and on the day of Mike's funeral as a sign of respect. Our sincere condolences are extended to his family and friends.
