Council pays tribute to Panel Chairman Cyril
Cumberland Council recently issued the following tribute following the death of Councillor Cyril Weber, the Chairman of Petteril Community Panel:
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Councillor Cyril Weber, Labour member for Harraby North. Cllr Weber died on Thursday, 4 April.
Cllr Weber was elected to represent the ward of Harraby North for Cumberland Council in May 2022. This followed more than 40 years in local politics, serving as an elected member for both the former Carlisle City Council (since May 1979) and Cumbria County Council (since 2001). He was also Mayor of Carlisle from 1988-89.
Cyril was a member of various Cumberland Council committees and was Chair of the Petteril Community Panel and Chair of the Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee. He was also a Trustee on the Charter Trustees for the City of Carlisle. His outside appointments included the Lowther Street Trust, Harraby Community Centre Management Committee and Mary Hannah Almshouses.
Paying tribute, Cllr Mark Fryer, Leader of Cumberland Council said:
“I am saddened to hear of the passing of my colleague, Cllr Cyril Weber. Cyril was a veteran of local politics and hugely well respected across all political persuasions.
“He was a passionate local politician who dedicated more than 40 years working to improve the lives of people across not just Carlisle but the wider area too. He leaves a lasting legacy for the communities he served in his long political career, and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.
“I first met Cyril when I was a young man. His passion for his city was unbelievable. It was Carlisle first, Carlisle second and if there were any crumbs on the table they were for Carlisle. What a man he was. And if anyone wants to know how to measure success, go to Harraby and see how Harraby Community Centre looks, it has Cyril Weber’s fibre running right through it. I wish I had another 20 people just like Cyril.
“On behalf of the entire council, I would like to express my deepest and sincere condolences to Cyril’s family and friends. Our thoughts are with them all at this difficult time.
“Our flags will be flown at half-mast until after the funeral as a mark of respect.”
