Councillor Antony Lillis, who has represented a Fulham ward on Hammermsith & Fulham Council for two decades, died this week just weeks after being diagnosed with a virulent form of cancer. Tributes have been paid by those, on all sides of the political spectrum, who knew him.
Although I didn't know Cllr Lillis I seem to lose at least one person that I know somehow per year to this horrendous disease. I'm going to be running the London Marathon next year for Cancer Research UK as a result, and will be unashamedly using this blog to try to raise funds.
To all those who did know Antony I'm sure we all send you the best. Puts things in perspective.
