Congratulations were in order for one of North Staffordshire's long-serving members who celebrated his 100th birthday on 8 October. At their society's monthly meeting The Arts Society National Chairman, Julie Goldsmith, presented Gordon Hewitt with an award for volunteering in recognition of his outstanding service as a committee member for Church Recorders, Chairman and President - and still volunteering until 12 months ago. After the meeting a lunch for 35 was held at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery where Carolyn Trevor-Jones, area Chairman, praised Gordon for his dedicated support over the years. Many happy returns, Gordon!
