COUNCILLOR Dave Sim for the Dearne North Ward has sadly passed away.

Leader of Barnsley Council, Coun Stephen Houghton said: "Councillor Dave Sim, despite only being on the authority for a short period of time, impressed everyone with his dedication and commitment to the role and particularly the championing of the Dearne Valley and Thurnscoe.

“Dave had a dry sense of humour and was well respected and regarded by his colleagues here on the council. He will be greatly missed by ourselves and I am sure his family and friends; and I offer my sincere condolences to them."

I worked with Dave for a number of years, mainly on Saturday mornings. He was a really nice bloke with strong political views. Although his views were far left of mine, he always argued his case well and we had many discussions over the years, and always in good humour.
