At the heart of Hanover

Sheila Schaffer

We were very sad to hear of the death of Sheila Schaffer on 30th December 2009. Sheila was a Hanover Councillor for more than ten years, including a term as Mayor of Brighton in 1995.

Her love of wildlife and concern for the environment was reflected in everything she did. Together with her colleague Joyce Edmond Smith, Sheila donated trees to be planted wherever an appropriate location could be found. Without them, Hanover wouldn’t be such a pleasant place to live.

A great friend and supporter of the Hanover Community Association, Sheila performed the official opening of the Hanover Centre garden by planting her gift of the flowering cherry tree.
