Here’s to you Mrs Robinson

AMONG the number of people dressed in period costume at last week’s memorial plaque unveiling was local resident Dorothy Robinson. Her brightly coloured umbrella contrasted with her widow’s outfit but it wasn’t for fending off the rain – it was for protection from the sun as New Norfolk enjoyed a pleasant spring day.

An active local historian – both as a writer and a volunteer at the New Norfolk Historical Information Centre – Mrs Robinson is also well known as a retired local businesswoman and as the first woman elected to the Derwent Valley Council back in the 1950s when it was still the New Norfolk Council.

Well done Dorothy Robinson, and here’s to you!
