Remembering Cllr Jeanette Halliday one year on

Abingdon Council News - Sun, 04/18/2021 - 12:39

A year ago, Cllr Jeanette Halliday passed away on Friday 17th April 2020. Jeanette had been poorly since just after Christmas but her passing came as a great shock to all her friends and colleagues here at the Council and in the wider community of Abingdon.
Jeanette was a Past Mayor, and it is our practice to fly the town flag at half-mast from the Old County Hall (Museum) in these circumstances. At the time the flagpole needed repair and we were unable to fly the flag. Consequently, we are flying the flag at half-mast now to commemorate the anniversary of Jeanettes passing.
