THE date for former Corby Council leader Pat Fawcett’s funeral has been confirmed.
There will be a public service at St Andrew’s Church of Scotland, in Occupation Road, Corby, at 12.30pm on Thursday, May 10.
This will be followed by a private service for family and close friends.
There will also be a wake, details of which are to be confirmed.
Cllr Fawcett lost her battle with cancer at the weekend, six months after standing down as leader of the council.
A book of condolence for Cllr Fawcett should be available to sign from Wednesday, in reception at the Corby Cube.
A permanent memorial is also being considered.
There will be family flowers only at the service, but donations can be made to county children’s cancer charity Chelsea’s Angels at www.charitygiving.co.uk/websitedonations.
