Chris Bennet awarded the Certificate of Merit

Anyone who knows the Elgar Birthplace Museum will have come across Chris Bennett. After many years of service, Chris has decided to move on in order to explore other avenues. His advice and encyclopaedic knowledge of all matters Elgarian will be sorely missed. However, he will not lose contact with the Elgar community and will still be available to lend his considerable experience when called upon. To mark his departure from the Birthplace, the Society has awarded him its Certificate of Merit in recognition of his extraordinary service to the Elgarian cause. The presentation was made in the Chapter House of Worcester Cathedral by Steven Halls, Chairman of the Society.
