Gill Featonby is presented with a certificate by Ian Thompson to mark her appointment as Honorary Life President at Longhirst Parish Association.

Gill Featonby, retiring Chairman of Longhirst Parish Association, has been appointed as Honorary Life President.

She was presented with a certificate by Ian Thompson, a trustee of the association, during a special dinner at Longhirst Village Hall.

In a speech, Mr Thompson said that Ms Featonby had served as the association’s Chairman for the first ten years of its existence.

During this time she steered the committee of trustees in a programme of revitalisation for the village hall. This had led to its being used not only as a modern resource for local people, but also as a regular welcoming venue for a wide variety of users, including Mid-Northumberland U3A.
