The death has been announced of Councillor Tejinder Dhami, who represented the Dormers Well ward on Ealing Council for nearly two decades.

Councillor Dhami was first elected for Labour in 2002 and was Mayor of the borough 2018-2019.

He undertook a variety of duties during his time as a councillor, including vice chair of the regulatory committee and a member of both corporate parent and freedom of the borough committees. He was also Labour group secretary from 2006 to 2013 and assistant whip. During his Mayoral year he supported Heartlink and Age UK.

Councillor Dhami lived and worked in Ealing since coming to the UK 1962. In his professional life Councillor Dhami worked at the Lyons Maid ice cream factory for 28 years and then for Marks and Spencer up to his retirement. He was a life member of the Indian Workers Association (IWA) and an executive member of the IWA since 1997. He maintained a keen interest in sport, playing hockey for Ealing Technical College and taking part in Indian Gymkhana in the 1970s and was a life member of the Indian Gymkhana.

Councillor Peter Mason, leader of the council said, “Tejinder was kind, wise and resolute in equal measure and I have very fond and warm memories of him that I will cherish.

“He willingly gave his time and experience to the community he loved and will be missed by all of us who worked closely with him and those he represented.

“Whilst Tejinder was soft in speech, his wisdom and sage advice has been such a feature of his time on the council and in the wider community over the many decades of his public service, not least during his Mayoralty.

“On behalf of all councillors and council officers, our sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.”

A new councillor for the ward will be elected during the local elections due to take place in May 2022.
