Parish councillors are looking for a way of commemorating the life of their former chairman who died last month.

Helen Maddox, 65, was a well-liked and respected member of Charlesworth Parish Council.

She was a member up until her death on September 9 and colleagues held a two minutes silence in her memory at their latest meeting.

Mrs Maddox was particularly active in moves to improve the entrance to Charlesworth Village Green.

However, her greatest passion, was the ongoing move to install lighting on top of the war memorial.

Mrs Maddox painstakingly researched records to make sure that the memorial had once been illuminated to satisfy any planning application conditions.

Members say they will talk with Mrs Maddox’s family about a suitable memorial before deciding what form it will take.
