It is with great sadness that my friend and colleague Cllr Lynda Murphy sadly passed away on Monday evening after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019. I’d like to offer my sincerest condolences to Lynda’s family at such a sad time.

Lynda was an incredible advocate and champion for the people of St Michael Ward in Winchester and the news of her death has come as a shock to us all.

She was a determined campaigner with a drive and commitment matched by few others to tackle climate change. Since her appointment into Cabinet in 2019, her tireless efforts to improve the lives of Winchester residents is a testimony to her character.

As well as being Cabinet Member for Climate Emergency, Lynda acted with great care, pride and compassion in her roles as Chair of the Carbon Neutrality Open Forum and Vice-Chair of Winchester Town Forum.

To me, she was a colleague and a friend. My heart goes out to her family and friends on behalf of everyone at Winchester City Council.
