RIP Gillian O’Connor of Horley

Gillian  passed away peacefully in the company of her friends on 3rd April after a short illness. Some of you will remember Gillian for her love of horses and her cats. She lived in Phlox Cottage and after retirement played a very active role in the Citizens Advice Bureau, which she wrote about it in the Horley Views magazine some years ago. However long before we knew her in Horley she had a remarkable career on Fleet Street as a journalist, editor and mentor to many writers.  See below the tribute into today’s Banbury Guardian
