The Leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Steve Curran has led tributes to Cllr Poonam Dhillon, who died recently following a short illness.

“It is with great sadness that we learnt at the weekend of the sudden death of Councillor Poonam Dhillon after a short illness. This has been a tremendous shock to Cllr Dhillon’s family, friends and fellow councillors, as well as residents she represented in Cranford ward.

Cllr Dhillon was a well-known and well-liked councillor, who served her community with distinction, she will be missed by all. On behalf of the Council, I would like to offer our sincere condolences to Cllr Dhillon’s family and friends, and fellow councillors”.

Ruth Cadbury, MP for Brentford & Isleworth, also worked with Poonam for many years.

“So sorry to hear of Poonam’s passing. She was a kind, cheerful and loyal colleague of mine for 8 years and will be sorely missed” she said.
