Tributes have been paid following the news that former councillor and Mayor of Wrexham, David Broderick, MBE, passed away on Tuesday, aged 90.

Mr Broderick stood down from local politics at the last election due to ill health having served since 1977 as a county councillor on the former Clwyd County Council and then Wrexham County Borough Council from 1996.

He was Mayor between 1997 and 1998 and was also Treasurer of Llay Cemetery and Chairman of Llay Park Primary School before his retirement.

His former colleague, Llay Councillor Malcolm Williams said:

“I am very sad to hear of David’s death. He served the community of Llay both as County Councillor and Clerk to the Community Council for over 40 years and I am proud to have worked alongside such a dedicated and committed member of the community.

“I know many people will join me in sending my condolences to his family during this very sad time.”

Deputy Leader, Cllr David Bithell, also spoke of his sadness at the news. He said:

“David was a very well respected councillor in Wrexham and in Llay where he served the local community for many years. He will be particularly missed by many people in the community in which he served.”

Funeral arrangements have not been released yet but will be available shortly.
