On September 1st, 2022, members of the Province had the privilege of accompanying Doreen Bell RSCJ to Newcastle Civic Centre to the Lord Mayor's Chamber.
She had been invited to be presented with an Award for long service to the local community through her work with the Fenham Association of Residents where she has been involved for 46 years.
It was a lovely occasion where the Mayor spoke highly of the work Doreen has instigated, supported and been involved in. Doreen responded with a spontaneous speech of thanks and tea and cake rounded it all off.
A great achievement at 90. Congratulations Doreen.
