Following the sad news of the death of Hounslow’s former Deputy Lieutenant, Maria Pedro after a short illness, the Leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Steve Curran, said:

“On behalf of the council and residents of Hounslow, I would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Maria Pedro, our former Deputy Lieutenant.

“Maria was an outstanding Deputy Lieutenant on behalf of Hounslow and worked tirelessly for the borough and residents, particularly for young people. Maria had a particular interest and skill in supporting young people right across the borough, as well as community groups, which resulted in many being nominated for, and subsequently receiving awards from Her Majesty The Queen.

“Her commitment to the borough was tremendous, and she will be greatly missed.”

Maria was appointed in 2011 as Deputy Lieutenant for Greater London and in 2012, she was appointed as representative Deputy Lieutenant for the London Borough of Hounslow until she stepped down from her duties in June 2018.

The Mayor of Hounslow, Cllr Samia Chaudhary, added:

“Since becoming the Deputy Lieutenant for Hounslow, Maria worked closely with all the borough’s Mayors, always willing to give up her time to support council and other Civic events such as Armed Forces Day, the Services of Remembrance and many other community events and activities.

“Her passing is a great loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this difficult time.”
