Elizabeth Allison with David Roy

On 14th September, Elizabeth Allison, one of our long standing members, retired from her position as Chairman of the Sutton Coldfield Civic Society, after many years of excellent service. It was her intention, she said, to spend more time doing local history research and furthering her other interests. David Roy, a previous Lord Mayor of Birmingham, presented her with a silver salver and thanked her for all her hard work and said she would be an extremely hard act to follow.
