Tributes are being paid following the sad passing of Norma Lincoln, former Mayor of North East Lincolnshire, and Honorary Alderman of Great Grimsby, at the weekend.
Norma was elected to Great Grimsby Borough Council in 1994, and then an elected Member of North East Lincolnshire Council from its inception in 1996 until 2015.
She was twice Mayor of North East Lincolnshire Council in 2001/02 and 2010/11.
She was granted Honorary Alderman status in July 2015 in recognition of her eminent service to the council as a past Member.
Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “Norma was a councillor for many years, and we met many times in the Chamber and outside of the Council. She served her Ward diligently, and was well respected across all political groups as someone who cared and who made a difference. She will be missed by a great many people.”
A minute’s silence will be held at Mayor Making this week in memory of Norma.
