It is with much sadness that we report the death of Cllr Gloria Stephen who died peacefully at home in Chipping Sodbury over the weekend.

Gloria served on Dodington Parish Council for 23 years – joining in May 1995.

Between 2010 and 2013 Gloria was Chairman of the Parish Council and more latterly she was a South Gloucestershire Councillor as well.

Our thoughts are with Malcolm and the family.  Gloria and Malcolm celebrated 50 years of marriage earlier this month.

Gloria’s funeral will be on Monday 24th September, 2:45pm at Westerleigh Crematorium, Westerleigh, BS37 8RF.  Please wear a bright tie or scarf.  Donations in lieu of flowers may be made in Gloria’s memory to Bristol Breast Care Centre or Clic Sargent.
