Christchurch Labour Party were saddened to hear of the death of Cllr Colin Bungey. He was a long-serving public figure and for years dedicated his life to being a public servant for Christchurch on the council, both BCP and Christchurch Council before the merger, and Christchurch Citizens Association. He was knowledgeable, polite and always fought fairly.
This is a massive shock to our local area and he will be missed as he was hugely respected within our community and regarded highly by colleagues. Our thoughts go out to his wife Sue and the family during this difficult period, we wish them all the best.
Chair of Christchurch Labour Party, Claire Wade, has said:
“My deepest condolences to his family at this time. His loss will be felt deeply throughout the community. He was a man who was dedicated to Christchurch for nearly 40 years and was highly respected by many.”
