It was with sadness we learned of the passing of Mr Sydney Cooper, former Conservative councillor for Claremont ward this morning.
Syd was leader of the Conservative group at one time and a hard working Salford councillor for many years. In spite of failing health, Syd maintained a keen interested in local politics until the end and was pleased with the resurgence of Salford Conservative federation in recent years. Salford has lost a faithful public servant.
His funeral is 3.00pm on Monday at Agecroft.
