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. His family were with him.

Andrew has been a Liberal/Liberal Democrat for over 42 years and a Councillor on Elmbridge Borough Council for Weybridge Riverside Ward for the last 8 years. He also served as a Cabinet member, the Council’s Deputy Leader and the Leader for the Liberal Democrat group in the Council.

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

Gill Smith, 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. We have lost a much loved member of our Liberal Democrat family and he will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.”
