Sherma Batson MBE
The Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, David Lloyd, would like to send his condolences to the family and friends of Sherma Batson MBE, the Stevenage councillor, former mayor and member of the Police and Crime Panel who died on Sunday.

 “I’m deeply saddened to hear of Sherma’s death. She was a good friend and formidable colleague who was a passionate public servant and a valued member of our Police and Crime Panel.

 As a councillor she was respected and well-liked by her constituents who will miss her terribly.

 My thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues at the council at this difficult time.”
