A Tribute to honorary townsman and

past town mayor, mrs patricia kent

Harpenden Town Council was saddened to learn recently of the passing of Honorary Townsman and Past Town Mayor, Mrs Patricia Kent.

Mrs Kent served Harpenden Town Council for many years, having been elected in 2003 and retiring in 2019.  During this time she served as Town Mayor in 2008/9 and twice as Deputy Mayor in 2007/8 and 2010/11.  This long service was recognised in 2019 when she was awarded the title of Honorary Townsman.

Mrs Kent sat on a number of Committees and Working Parties over the years and brought a great deal of energy and dedication to her role as a Town Councillor.  She was particularly known for her work as Chair and Vice-Chair of the Harpenden in Bloom Working Party and she also served as Chair and Vice-Chair a number of times on the Allotments Working Party.

Mrs Kent was a well-known and well-loved member of the Town Council and will be much missed. Our deepest condolences go to all of her family.
