Lizzie BarnesThe staff and councillors at Stone Parish Council are devastated to hear about the tragic passing of our dear friend and colleague, Lizzie Barnes, following a short battle with cancer.

Lizzie had worked at Stone Pavilion since 2017 and is described by her teammates as ‘a beautiful person both inside and out’ and ‘one of the nicest people you could ever meet’. For her to have been taken from her partner, Gordon, and daughters, Grace and Sophia, at such a young age is beyond comprehension.

Lizzie will be truly missed by everyone at the council. Our deepest sympathies are extended to Lizzie’s family and friends, as well as her colleagues at the Co-op on London Road, where she also worked.

A silence will be held for Lizzie at this evening’s full council meeting.

May she Rest in Peace.
