The Society of Local Council Clerks has been paying tribute to Stephen Lugg, the Chief Executive of the Hampshire Association of Local Councils, who has sadly died at the age of 54. Stephen was also a County and District Councillor, past Chairman of East Dorset District Council and the current Town Mayor of Ferndown TC. Speaking on behalf of all members of SLCC, Chief Executive Rob Smith said: “Steve was an associate member of SLCC for over 10 years and a keen supporter and officer of the Hampshire Branch. He was a passionate advocate for professionalising the role of parish clerk and was a supporter, confidante and friend to numerous clerks in Hampshire and beyond. He will be sorely missed by many. We extend our most sincere condolences to his wife Cathy and their children”.
