A long-serving director of Buxton Civic Association (BCA) has stepped down.

In honour of Hilary Lawrence’s outstanding 27-year contribution, a presentation evening was held recently at Poole’s Cavern visitor centre, when she was presented with two pieces of work by local artist Pauline Townsend.

BCA chairman Mike Monaghan paid tribute to Hilary’s dedicated service over the years, in particular her leadership of the planning committee.

“She had done a difficult job extremely well and guided the association through the minefield of planning with great skill and diplomacy,” he said. Hilary confirmed she would remain a member of the association.
