A memorial bench for a former council leader who lost her battle with cancer last year will be installed in the ward she served.

Tory councillor Lynne Hillan passed away last April, having stepped down from her post as council leader the year before to battle the disease.

Her ward colleague in Brunswick Park Andreas Tambourides has raised £1,100 to install a bench in Osidge Lane in her memory.

The tribute will be placed between Brunswick Park School, where the former cabinet member served as a governor, and Osidge Library, where she held regular surgeries.

Current council leader Richard Cornelius will lead the unveiling of the bench on March 1 at 4pm, which will be followed by tea and biscuits at the school.

Councillor Tambourides said: “I think it is the least we can do for a lady who contributed so much to the ward and the borough in general, as well as to her residents. She was a fantastic lady and this will be a fitting tribute.”
