It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the title of Honorary Freewoman of the Town and Parish of Great Torrington is being awarded to Councillor Margaret Brown.
This honorary title is given in recognition of Councillor Brown’s long and eminent service as both a Town and District Councillor and was awarded by a unanimous decision at an Extraordinary Meeting of the full council held in October 2022.
