            Tribute to Councillor Janice Dudley

                                                               Her heart was here with us, but she didn’t
                                                               feel that she could continue to give us the
                                                               commitment she wanted to, while carrying
                                                               out her duties as Mayor of Neath Port Talbot.
                                                               I, along with many others viewed her
                                                               departure as a sabbatical - a year out from
                                                               which we hoped she would return next year.

                                                               I’m extremely saddened that her departure is
                                                               now a permanent one and she will be dearly
                                                               I have been reading through the tributes being
                                                               paid to Janice and the respects you have
                                                               paid are testament to how much a part of our
                                                               family Janice was, and I know that we will all
                                                               remember her as one of our own.
                                                               Janice was a fearless lady, she fought

            This was the epitome for Janice and an             to be and someone I wouldn’t have wished to

            Janice viewed the Service as an extension          But I couldn’t help but smile at a tribute paid
            of her family, we were in her words, her “girls    by one of Janice’s colleagues from Neath Port
            and boys” and she was without question, our        Talbot, Rebeca Phillips, who described Janice
            Mother Hen.
