Fanny Stott

Fanny Stott spent a life in public service, from training to be a nurse to becoming a local ward councillor and eventually becoming Wakefield’s first female Mayor. The Wakefield Civic Society unveiled her Blue Plaque on Saturday, 24th September in a ceremony attended by Mayor of Wakefield, Councillor David Jones, and Mayoress Annette Jones.

Forgotten Women of Wakefield researcher Helga Fox provided much of the research on Fanny’s life, and we are thrilled to see her honoured in this way by the Civic Society.
