Denis Duffy

Denis Duffy President of Newcastle-under-Lyme Civic Society

Denis joined the Civic Society in 1991.  A regular attendee of our monthly meetings, he was a staunch supporter of the Society’s projects.

For many years he was the hard working and conscientious Honorary Secretary, and would often deliver minutes to members by hand, always finding time for a chat as he did so.

In 2009 Denis was elected as President of the Society and in 2014 he became one of only four elected Honorary  members, positions he held with considerable pride for the rest of his life.

His knowledge of the locality and buildings was of great value to the Civic Society and his well-informed advice was readily given whenever requested.

Always cheerful and ready to help on any occasion, Denis became a good friend to all of us who knew him, and he will be greatly missed.
