Brighton & Hove Labour Group were very sad to learn of the passing of former Labour Councillor Frieda Warman-Brown
She was first elected to the council in 1996 in the old Vallance Ward, where she helped create Vallance Community Centre in partnership with residents on Clarendon estate, campaigned with the local MP to pedestrianise George Street, and chaired the Education Committee.
Frieda was a stalwart campaigner for the Labour Party and a talented fundraiser, often seen with a raffle ticket or auction hammer in hand. She was a big personality and fun to be around.
The daughter of Lord George Brown, who served in Harold Wilson’s cabinet, Frieda was passionate about education, having taught in London for many years, and chairing the board of Governors at COMART where she fought to keep the school open.
She will be missed, but we are thankful for her significant contribution both to the Labour Party and our City and the thoughts of the Labour Group are with her family.
Frieda’s funeral will be taking place on Monday 27th June – 13:30 at Golders Green crematorium.
The family have set up a JustGiving page for donations in Frieda’s memory. Funds raised will go to the Hove Labour Party Election Fund.
