24 Aug New life members of Heswall Society
High Sheriff of Merseyside, Nigel Lanceley DL, has presented two residents of Heswall with Honorary Life Memberships to the Heswall Society. They are also both recipients of Wirral Awards from Wirral Borough Council. Dennis Clegg, the Society’s recently retired Planning Officer and former Chair, and Caroline Cartwright, proprietor of The Village Shop, Lower Heswall, received their honours for their tireless work on behalf of the people of Heswall.
Current Chair, Steve Anderson, described how Dennis’s work with the Society has helped Heswall to retain its unique character and, in particular, how he designed a model for Friends groups which is now in use throughout the borough.
He praised Caroline as a constant major support of the community and in particular during COVID. Mr Lanceley referred to her efforts as ‘the epitomy of humanity’.
