Councillor Andrew Davis 1956-2021

We are sorry to bring you the sad news of Andrew Davis’s death on Sunday 10th January in Princess Alice Hospice.

Andrew had been a Liberal/Liberal Democrat for over 42 years and councillor for Weybridge on Elmbridge Borough for eight years, first for Weybridge North and then, when ward boundaries were re-drawn, for Weybridge Riverside. He also served in the Council as a Cabinet member, the Leader of the Liberal Democrat group and as the Deputy Leader of the Council.

Many of Andrew’s political activities were inspired by his life-long passion for the environment. This resulted in a number of pioneering initiatives such as Green Transport Week, National Car Free Day, Walk to School Day and 20’s Plenty, several of which gained national and even international recognition.

Gill Smith, one of the Weybridge Focus team and Chair of Elmbridge Liberal Democrats said: “We all remember Andrew as a phenomenal campaigner and an utterly dedicated Liberal Democrat, as well as awesomely energetic and an altogether fascinating human being. We are deeply grateful for his massive contribution to our party’s work in Elmbridge and particularly in Weybridge. We have lost a much loved member of our Liberal Democrat family and he will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.”
