Rest In Peace Audrey Pickering
I am sorry to hear that Audrey Pickering a great servant to the people of Minster has died. As I wrote when she resigned from Thanet District Council just over a year ago
"Audrey had a strong personal vote in Minster for all the work she had carried out over many years. She was first elected as a Labour councillor in 1974, and became an Independent councillor in 1999. Audrey was a Minster parish councillor for over 35 years!"
Many people will be paying tribute to her life, her dedication to Minster and her public service at Audrey's funeral which will be at 1pm on Thursday 22nd April at Minster Church. When Audrey stood down from Thanet District Council many fulsome tributes were made. I know this will again sadly be the case at the Council meeting this coming Thursday evening. My condolences to her family.
