Cllr Simon Eardley, who succeeded Brian as Councillor for Saughall and Mollington Ward, paid tribute to his predecessor: "Since taking over from Brian as CWaC councillor for the Saughall and Mollington Ward in 2019, I have been ever conscious of the big shoes I've been trying to fill. "Brian was a dedicated public servant with a passion for the villages under his care, not least his love for and practical commitment to Mollington where he lived. “As the past holder of high civic office, his service extended to the City of Chester and the Borough as a whole together with his involvement across different organisations.
