It is with great sadness that Harlow Council announces the passing of former Harlow Councillor, Tony Hall.
Tony served as a ward councillor for Church Langley from 2002 until last year, when he stood down due to ill health. He was also Chair of the Council twice, in 2008/9 and 2015/16.
It was during his second term as Chair that he granted the Royal Anglian Regiment the freedom to march through the town, an event which really brought the town together and something Tony was always very proud of.
As a mark of respect the council flag is flying at half-mast outside the Civic Centre and there will be a minute's silence held at the start of tomorrow's (Thursday 1 April) Council meeting.
Harlow Council thanks Tony for all his years of service to Harlow and our thoughts are with Tony's family at this sad time.
