Labour colleagues will miss Stephen Tindale

13 July, 2017

• MEMBERS and councillors in Holborn & St Pancras Labour Party are extremely sad to learn of the death of Stephen Tindale, Haverstock branch chair and Constituency Labour Party General Committee delegate.

I worked with Stephen during my two-and-a-half years as the Labour Party organiser and it was a privilege to have done so. Stephen’s drive to resolve environmental problems, coupled with intelligent, practical realism earned him huge respect across the local party.

Members have contacted me to offer tributes, which I’m including here, and we would all like to offer our sincere condolences to his family. We will miss him greatly.

“Stephen was deeply committed to Europe and the environment. As chair of Haverstock Branch Labour Party he encouraged rigorous thinking and practical action on these issues. He will be missed.” Charlie Foreman (Haverstock branch secretary) and Lindy Stacey (Haverstock branch co-vice-chair).

“We were deeply saddened to learn of Stephen’s death. He was a kind man and passionate campaigner for the EU and the environment. His quiet authority, warmth and approachability will be deeply missed by Haverstock Branch.” Cllr Alison Kelly, Cllr Abdul Quadir and Cllr Abi Wood (Haverstock ward cllrs).

“It was always enjoyable to discuss Labour Party matters, Europe and the environment with Stephen – there was so much to learn from him. It will be such a loss for the labour movement to no longer have his passionate voice for those causes he cared most about.” Grace Clark (Holborn & St Pancras women’s officer).
