Hertsmere Council has paid tribute to a “hard-working” former Potters Bar councillor who died earlier this month.

Elected members and council officers have expressed their sadness following news of the death of former councillor Christine Calcutt, who represented Potters Bar Furzefield Ward between 1999 and 2010.

Leader of the council, Cllr Morris Bright MBE, said: “Christine was a long-serving and hard-working borough councillor who represented her constituents in Potters Bar diligently and was highly thought of by her colleagues.

“My sympathy to her husband, Robert, who was also a borough councillor, and to the rest of Christine’s loved ones.”

Cllr Martin Worster, borough councillor for Potters Bar Furzefield, said: “I was elected to Furzefield ward in 2010 when Christine stood down, so I know first hand how highly thought of she was in Potters Bar for her sterling work as a councillor.

“She was tireless in her efforts to do her best for the people she represented.

“She also did a great deal for Mencap locally and was involved with lots of other charitable endeavours.

“Christine was also a dear friend to me and my wife, Pam, and we will miss her greatly.”
