We are sorry to announce that Sharon Hannah sadly passed away last Saturday, 10 February 2018.
Sharon was a local, family lawyer who many of our senior members will remember. She articled at Greenwoods Solicitors LLP and was one of the first female solicitors to qualify in Peterborough. After leaving Greenwoods, she joined Norris & Co, and then subsequently set up her own firm, Hannah & Co.
On behalf of PADLS, we pass on our sincere condolences to Sharon's family and friends at this difficult time.
If anyone would like more information about her funeral, please contact Jeremy Roberts on email@example.com
This month, PADLS' President, Kirstie Goulder of Greenwoods Solicitors LLP has been interviewed by the Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society for her role as the youngest president of a local law society, answering questions on her decision to become a lawyer and experiences of working with local law societies.

The next committee meeting will take place at Hunt & Coombs, Peterborough from 5.45pm on 7 February 2018.
The AGM will take place at 5pm prompt on 21 March 2018 (venue TBC but likely to be Buckles Solicitors, Peterborough).
We were lucky enough to be invited to a tribute at Peterborough Combined Court Centre today to mark the work of Honour Judge Peter Greene on his retirement and 70th birthday.
It was fantastic to see so many local advocates in one court room showing their appreciation to Honour Judge Peter Greene, sharing tales of their experiences with him explaining why they found him to be such a fair, professional and disciplined member of the judiciary.
On behalf of PADLS, we wish you all the best on your retirement and will miss seeing you regularly, particularly at our Annual Dinners.
Unfortunately, as a result of Theresa May's decision to call a General Election on 8 June 2017, the planned trip to the House of Parliament had to be cancelled. This will be re-scheduled after the long vacation, probably in October or November of this year.
The original interested parties have been asked to indicate their interest in attending a later visit and we are still looking for others who might be interested. If you are interested, please contact John Chrisp, Serjeant & Son by telephone (01487 812325) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Our next Annual General Meeting will take place at Buckles Solicitors, Bourges Boulevard, Peterborough on Wednesday 22 March 2017 at 5pm.
