A much respected, independently minded and likeable Hythe town councillor has sadly died, eventually succumbing to cancer. Amongst other deeply held views, Denise was passionate about protecting the environment, animal welfare and local politics. As a representative of East Hythe ward, she made sure that the views of Horn Street and Seabrook residents were properly represented in council meetings, and she was always prepared to stand up for what she thought was right. A staunch vegetarian and campaigner for wildlife, she fought to maintain local history and save open spaces.
She would often politely but firmly disagree with some of her fellow councillors, but she always commanded respect for her insights and knowledge. Hythe Town Council offers its deepest condolences to her husband Alan.
