It is with the greatest sadness that we have learnt of former Councillor and Deputy Town Mayor, Tanya Forster’s recent passing. Tanya was a fondly and highly regarded member of Huntingdon Town Council from 2011 to 2018 and her dedication to the local community will be forever remembered. Members and Officers of the Council send their deepest sympathy to Tanya’s family at such a heart-breaking time and will hold many happy memories of Tanya’s time as a colleague and friend at the Council. Her infectious smile and endless optimism will be missed by all who knew her.
From the pen of our Managing Director and ex-Huntingdon Mayor, Bill Hensley:-
“Tanya was Deputy Mayor when I was Mayor in 2013, she accompanied me on many duties, and helped with the fundraising for The Mayor’s Charities. She climbed the O2 dome instead of me having to do it, and even jumped out of an aeroplane for a fundraising SkyDive, again, instead of me. My real memories of Tanya was that she was a dedicated wife and mother and loved her family. I will really miss her.”
Indeed we shall all miss Tanya at the studio, and our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
