THE leader of Wirral Council has paid tribute to Upton councillor Sylvia Hodrien, who passed away earlier this week.
Councillor Phil Davies said: “Sylvia Hodrien was a wonderful person and an excellent councillor for Upton ward.
“As a former teacher she had an excellent knowledge of education and she helped residents with welfare benefits through her work as a volunteer with the Citizens Advice Bureau.
“Sylvia was first elected to the council in May 2012, and had developed a reputation as an extremely conscientious councillor who always went the extra mile to help residents in Upton ward.
"She was a valued member of the Labour group and will be hugely missed. My thoughts go to her family and friends at this sad time.”
A by-election has been called and the poll will take place on Thursday, October 24.
