We send our deepest condolences to Sir David Amess's family on their tragic loss.
Sir David was always supportive and came to many of the Arts Council Open Days and exhibitions always taking the time to speak to every group and take photos. He strongly advocated Southend becoming a City of Culture so much so he even started a campaign for us as an alternative city of culture.
He will be missed.
