Announcement by Councillor S Peaple

 

I understand at the Committee Meeting the other night it was mentioned that Lara will be leaving the authority. On behalf of the Members of the Labour Group, and I’m sure many other Councillors, I’d like to say that we will be missing her services, she has done a wonderful job, helped so many of us and I’d just like to say thank you.

 

Announcement by Councillor D Cook

 

I echo that.
