At an event to celebrate over 40 years since its inception, the Heather Club a local charity for those with memory loss announced that it was making Mrs Norma Dean its first President.

Michael Rowan, the current Chair said, “We wanted to do something special to mark such a significant milestone for the Heather Club and making Norma our first President was probably the easiest decision in our 40 years.” In reply Norma said “Thank you, I feel very honoured to be appointed life president. I have always enjoyed being involved with the Heather Club.” The announcement was made at a special 40th celebration funded by a Tesco Community Grant at the Carey Baptist Church. The event was attended by Sir Michael Penning MP, the Deputy Mayor of Dacorum, Councillor Alan Johnson as well as over 60 members of the public.
