As a group we have been deeply saddened by the loss of Reg Green - a fine and outstanding councillor for whom we had the greatest respect although we were on opposite sides of the chamber.
Reg never failed to stand up for his Offington and Findon residents and showed us all exactly how a ward councillor should act - speaking up for residents at every opportunity.
Worthing as a whole owes a great debt to Reg for the time and effort he put in to serve his community - he will be long remembered.
The hearts and love of all Worthing Liberal Democrat members go out to his wife Doreen at this time and our thoughts and prayers are with her.
