It saddens us to report that Julia Orr passed away at home on the 16th July.
Julia was the Secretary of the Portchester Civic Society since its inception in 2000, retiring in November 2009 when she was made an Honorary Member. Previous to that she had also been the Secretary of the Portchester Society since its beginning in 1978.During all that time she amassed a wealth of knowledge on local planning issues and her comments on applications were well respected by Fareham Borough Council Planning Department. I learnt a lot from Julia on sticking to the facts of applications and ignoring rumours. I endeavor to continue in her tradition of looking after the built and natural environment of her beloved Portchester.Paul Woodman Honorary Secretary Portchester Civic Society
