Andy Shallice, a comrade from Sheffield Heeley Labour Party, died suddenly last Saturday, 14 December.

Andy returned to the Labour Party with the Corbyn victory in 2015 and led local campaigning in the constituency. He was warm, funny, optimistic and politically switched-on. He fought for accountability and revelled in asking difficult questions of the local labour bureaucracy.

Previously as a Unison activist. he had been key to the local rank and file, Unison Unleashed.

He had been active on the left in the North West and Sheffield since the 70s, including with Workers’ Fight (a forerunner of Workers’ Liberty) for a time.

As we embark on rebuilding our movement he will be sadly missed.

I worked with Andy during his time in Liverpool. A loyal friend and activist. He never lost his commitment to socialism and worked tirelessly for others. He was a valued founder of Red Rope the socialist Mountaineering group. My memories will be arguments, fun, laughter and challenging authority in all its forms . I'll miss you buddy
