Chris BaileyIt is with great sadness that Southend Liberal Democrats announce the death of Chris Bailey, who died from natural causes whilst sailing in Scotland yesterday. Chris was someone for whom the expression 'stalwart' was invented. He joined the Liberal Party in 1965, when he was 16. He has worked continuously and tirelessly for the Liberals and their successors, the Liberal Democrats, since that date. In the 1970s he was Councillor for the then Prittlewell Ward and was Borough Councillor for Leigh Ward for a period in the 1980s.

Chris was leading member of the Party, both locally and nationally, including acting as adviser to the current Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Vince Cable.

Chris will be greatly missed by the whole community.
