We must sadly inform you of the death of Councillor Frances Moseley. She passed away yesterday (18th December) at Princess Alice Hospice, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

We will remember Frances with deep affection and with admiration for her feisty approach to life and her bravery.

Frances was elected as a Liberal Democrat councillor for Berrylands ward in May 2006, and had served the local residents with commitment and integrity. She was a senior member of the Council Group, serving as Lead Member for Better Homes, Co-Chair of the Place and Sustainability Committee and Vice Chair of the Development Control Committee.

She will be sorely missed.

The Kingston Council leader said:

"It's very sad, although not unexpected. She had been ill for a considerable amount of time.

"I spoke to her a couple of months ago and she said she wanted to stay as long as she could working for her tenants. Even from the hospice she was authorising councillors' questions and so on, and that was just last week. She really did show tremendous courage and commitment, particularly to the tenants and the poor people in the borough.

"I've been in the council since 1986 and I think she has been one of the most successful housing leads I can remember.

"She was a remarkable woman and we will all miss her. She was a no-nonsense woman. What she thought she said and I think people liked that style."
