TRIBUTES have been paid to one of Middlewich’s “best ever” town councillors.

Councillor Anne Price passed away on November 16, aged 66.

She was elected to Middlewich Town Council as an independent in May, with a minute silence held in her honour at this month’s meeting.

“It is with enormous sadness that we have to announce the death of councillor Anne Price,” said a spokesperson for the town council.

“Without doubt one of the best, hard working, positive councillors Middlewich has ever had.

“Rest in Peace, Anne.

“You will be sadly missed by not only your family and friends, but all of us at Middlewich Town Council and by all those whose lives you touched.”

Alongside her role on the council, Anne worked as a business manager and bursar for the Federation of Antrobus St Mark’s and Great Budworth CE Primary Schools.

Headteacher of Antrobus, Rhian Perry, said: “She wasn’t with the federation for a long time but she was a valued member of our team and she will be missed.

“We were very sad to hear of her passing and we shared the poem ‘Let me go’ by Christina Georgina Rossetti across the federation as this was her wish.

“Both of the teams at Antrobus St Marks and Great Budworth Primary Schools send their condolences and prayers to Anne’s friends and family at this very sad time.”
