Sad news regarding former Councillor and Mayor, Pauline Davies

It is with great sadness that Leominster Town Council announce the death of former Councillor and Mayor, Pauline Davies.

Pauline served faithfully as a councillor for nearly 30 years and was Mayor of Leominster in 1995-1996. She was ‘born and bred’ in Leominster, often reminiscing about hop picking with her family from the age of four. Pauline was instrumental in ensuring that the May Fair returned to the centre of Leominster, a tradition fondly remembered from her youth. She campaigned for a new swimming pool and junior school for the town, championed shopping locally, ensured that the Polish graves were cleaned at a time when they had been neglected and could be always be found supporting the Poppy Appeal. One of her fellow councillors said that she never missed a town council meeting or Civic event and once, when asked why she committed so much of her time to council work, she replied ‘ I love my town, it’s as simple as that!’

Our thoughts and condolences are with Pauline’s family and friends at this sad time.
