An extraordinary meeting of the Council will be held on Wednesday 15 October to consider the recommendation to bestow the freeman of the city honour on Yolonda in recognition of her unstinting duty of public service over a total of 32 years elected service on the City Council. This includes a number of years as Leader of the Conservative Group, as well as Mayor of the City in 1982. Throughout that time, she has always put the interests of the residents of the City and the future of the City itself, first.

Yolonda most recently served the residents in the Polsloe ward on the City Council but was defeated in the City Council elections in May of this year.

She said: "It is an honour that the city of Exeter is considering bestowing on me the Freedom of the City. I will continue to support and promote our lovely ancient city as I have during all my life in Exeter."
