Jenny Henson - Consort to the Chair of North Northamptonshire Council Cllr Larry Henson - has sadly passed away.

Jenny, who had also served her community as a local councillor including a period as Mayor of Kettering, died on Tuesday, September 13.

Initially elected in 2003, she had represented the St Michaels Ward and then St Michaels and Wicksteed Ward until standing down in 2021. As Mayor between 2008 and 2009, she raised £15,000 for Cransley Hospice.

I met Jenny a number of times and she was a lovely lady. She will be sorely missed, and my thoughts are with our Chair, Cllr Larry Henson at this most difficult time.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council
