Murrayfield Community Council was sad to hear of the passing of former Community Councillor Derek Huckle. Derek was co-opted in 2013, was elected later that year, became vice-Chair, and stepped down at the elections in October 2016. The present Chair described Derek as "a doughty champion of our causes at the Western Edinburgh Neighbourhood Partnership and elsewhere, and gave me much support." Indeed, he was a pragmatic and effective champion across a range of institutions and we were fortunate that he lived in the community and could be lured to the Community Council.
