It is with great sadness that we are sharing the news of the passing of Councillor Jenny Hyde, on 11 February, 2019.

Councillor Hyde was well known as hard working, professional in all her undertakings and a friend to many of us.

Councillor Hyde was first elected to Llangarron Ward on 1 May 2003.  She was re-elected to Llangarron at the following two full term local government elections in May 2007 and May 2011. 

She also served as Mayor and was a Parish Councillor in Ross-on-Wye for many years.

During her distinguished career Councillor Hyde served dutifully in several prominent roles.  She was Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, before serving for a number of years as Cabinet Support Member for Young People and Children’s Wellbeing.  She was also an active member of the Adults Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee and a member of the corporate parenting panel; she was tireless in her pursuit of improving the lives of young people in the county, and in particular the children looked after by the council.

 She will be sadly missed and always warmly remembered by us all.
