Everyone associated with Newcastle Conservatives is saddened by the death of Marian last Friday. Recently re-elected Vice President of Newcastle Conservatives, Marian was active in supporting and advising Conservative activists locally right up to last year’s elections. Marian was a staunch no nonsense Conservative and proud to serve the people of Newcastle, maintaining a regular attendance at Newcastle City Council meetings in her role as an Alderman of the City until her recent illness. With many friends across the political divide, her wealth of knowledge and experience of local politics and working for the people of Newcastle will be most keenly missed within Newcastle Conservative Federation. Newcastle Chairman Gerry Langley said ’Marian was a warm, friendly and caring person, an inspiration to new Conservatives, she will be greatly missed but never forgotten here in Newcastle. Our thoughts are with her family and close friends’.
