“It is with deep regret and sadness that we learnt of the sudden death of Cllr Rajinder Bath, Heston West Ward. Cllr Bath passed away at home with his family on Sunday. His death has come as a terrible shock to everyone. On behalf of Hounslow Council, I would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
“Cllr Rajinder Bath held a career in the Civic Service and was one of the longest serving councillors in the borough, first elected in 1990. During his period of office he held several posts, including being elected as Deputy Mayor of Hounslow in 1997 and then Mayor in 1998. He was also made Freeman of the Borough in October 2015 (25 years’ service), as well as elected as Vice-Chair and Chair of various committees and was currently Chair of the Pension Fund Panel. Since Cllr Bath became a councillor, he has represented the residents of Heston West with distinction and that continued throughout his career fighting on behalf of his residents, particularly for those residents who were most disadvantaged and was a committed lifelong trade unionist. He will be greatly missed by all.”
