Oxford City Council pays tribute to Councillor Angie Goff, who has sadly passed away.

She was first elected to the City Council in May 2016, representing the Wolvercote Ward as a Liberal Democrat Member. She served on the Council, Licensing and Gambling Acts Committee, Scrutiny Housing Panel, and Oxford Living Wage Scrutiny Review Group.

She was the Chairman of the Wolvercote Commoners and a member of Wolvercote Neighbourhood Forum.

Councillor Goff’s funeral will be taking place at 1pm on Friday 26 October at Wolvercote Cemetery. The wake will take place at Oxford University Press Amalgamated Athletics Club. The city flag above Oxford Town Hall will be lowered the flag to half-mast on this day.

Councillor Susan Brown, Leader at Oxford City Council, said: “We are all very sad to hear the news of Councillor Angie Goff’s passing. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time. We will miss Angie’s cheerful presence and her contributions on behalf of her constituents.”

Councillor Andrew Gant, Liberal Democrat Group Leader, said: “Angie was a wonderful colleague and a fantastic Councillor. Her roots in her community in Wolvercote ran deep, and it was obvious the respect and affection in which she was held.

“She approached her job as a councillor not as a politician but as a champion of the people she’d lived amongst all her life and she went on fighting their corner as long as she was able. She was a great character, full of laughter and fun. We will miss her.”

Councillor Stephen Goddard, Liberal Democrat shadow member for Young People, Schools and Skills, Liberal Democrat Group said: “Angie Goff was an ideal councillor for Wolvercote ward: hard-working, dedicated and with deep roots in her community, she was well-known, popular and highly effective.

“She worked closely with many local organisations - especially the Neighbourhood Forum, and the Wolvercote Commoners Committee, of which she had been a highly respected Chair - to improve life in the ward. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her”
