A tribute has been paid to former Wyre Forest District Councillor Lin Henderson, who sadly died on Sunday 15 December.

Mrs Henderson was elected to the council in 2015, representing Areley Kings & Riverside ward until May 2016. She was elected as a town councillor for Stourport Town Council in May 2019.

Councillor Peter Young, Wyre Forest District Council’s Vice-Chairman said:

“It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the news of Lin’s death. She was a popular character on the council, dedicated and conscientious in all she did to represent residents within her ward. Our thoughts and condolences are with her family and friends at this sad time.”

The council also sends its thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of former Wyre Forest District Councillor June Salter who passed away in October. She represented Mitton Ward from 2000 to 2008 and Stourport Town Council’s Lickhill North Ward from 2007 to 2011.
