Dronfield Civic Society welcomes Jo Wright onto our committee.
Jo brings a lot of experience from her work with U3A. She has lived in Dronfield for almost fifty years and believes that we should take care of the environment wherever we live.
She hopes to support and encourage growth of the society through membership and will be pleased to receive your annual subscriptions and welcome new members.
Robert has been a member of Dronfield Civic Society for 22 years. He was vice chairman from 2006 to 2011.
Robert originally joined the Civic Society for support to help prevent opencasting on green belt land. His two year campaign to prevent this happening was successful.
Some years later, Robert got involved in a lengthy but sucessful campaign to prevent the expansion of Callywhite Lane onto nearby countryside.
Robert's interests are planning and the environment so he is keen to see the introduction of NEDDC’s Local Plan. Robert works in conjunction with Dronfield in Bloom and has planted many of the town’s bulbs.
Robert was born in Dronfield, attended local schools and has worked in the construction industry for more than 25 years.
He became a life member of Dronfield Civic Society after receiving a John Robert Clough Award in 2014 for the quality of his construction work on Princess Road.
As a committee member, Robert will take on the role of reviewing planning applications. He has a keen interest in helping to protect the heritage of the town.
David has spent a lifetime in the construction industry, and on retiring joined the Civic Society.
When he is not playing with his vintage tractors or restoring old farm machinery he likes nothing better than to get involved in hands on projects.
These include: litter picking, helping local school children to make bird boxes, repairing seats, laying mesh along the slippery Unstone Line board walk and organising and working with the Community Payback Scheme with young offenders.
David has in his time with Dronfield Civic Society, planted thousands of daffodil and crocus bulbs around the town.
We welcome Jo Wright as our new Membership Secretary.
John Hinchcliffe will be taking on additional duties as Secretary.
We are pleased that Mick Kirk will be our new Treasurer.
If any members would like to join the committee, please get in touch.
