A well deserved award for our Vice President from the Sport and Recreation Alliance and presented by HRH Prince Edward
Here is the citation from the SRA.
Hilary attended her first meeting at the then CCPR in 1971, when she became the representative member for the Medau Society. She was already a teacher and trainer for the Society, working to get people of all ages and abilities involved in Medau work, and movement and dance in general. She was the first elected Chairman of the Medau Society, and continued to take classes and train teachers for many years.
After becoming Deputy Chair of the Division in 1979, she became a member of the CCPR Executive Committee, among others, including the Sports Council/Health Education Authority’s Fitness and Health Advisory Group. In 1989 she became Chairman of the Movement and Dance Division, and was active in promoting the work of the Division for many years through large scale events around the country and, in particular, helping to organise the regular Festivals of Movement and Dance every five years at the Royal Albert Hall, coinciding with the CCPR/S&RA anniversaries.
Hilary is a Vice President of both the Medau Society and the Alliance. She has five children, nine grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, and has still to retire completely.
CONGRATULATIONS AND OUR THANKS FOR HILARY'S CONTINUING CONTIBRUTION TO MEDAU.
