Council pays tribute to Dave Myers

Dave Myers.

Following the death of Dave Myers, Sam Plum, the Chief Executive of Westmorland and Furness Council, said: "Everyone at Westmorland and Furness Council has been saddened to learn of the death of Dave Myers. He was a tireless advocate for Barrow, Furness and the wider area and did immense good showcasing the many fantastic aspects of our area nationally and internationally.

"His easy embodiment of the strength of community of his home town was evident in everything he did and his support of events, groups and charities locally was much appreciated by many.

"The world is a less brighter place after his passing and we would like to extend our sympathies to Dave's family and friends. The flag at Barrow Town Hall has been lowered to half mast today as a mark of our respect and we will be discussing in the days and weeks to come how we can more permanently commemorate Dave's legacy."
