Tributes paid

Tributes have poured in for Bridgnorth’s mayor Jean Onions, who has died following her long battle with cancer. She was praised as having her love of Bridgnorth at the centre of everything she did and as being a ‘one of a kind’ Mayor.

Deputy mayor Cllr Ron Whittle spoke of her tireless work for other, saying, “On behalf of the councillors, staff and residents of Bridgnorth, I wish to express the great sadness felt at the news of the death of Jean Onions. Our thoughts are with Jean’s family at this time.

“Apart from being on town council together, I have known Jean and her late husband very well indeed since we were in our late teens. She was a true entrepreneur, running their florists with good humour and professionalism. She will be sadly missed.”
