Rutland and Melton Liberal Democrats are holding a supper to celebrate their vice president Fay Howison winning the Harriet Smith Award.

Sal Brinton, the party president, will be there to present the award. She will also do a question-and-answer session with those attending.

The supper takes place on Wednesday 9 November at Rutland Sailing Club, Gibbotts Lane, Edith Weston, Rutland LE15 8HJ.

Full details and a form to complete and email can be found on the East Midlands Liberal Democrats site.

We all know who Fay Howison and Sal Brinton are, but some readers may want further explanation.

The Harriet Smith Liberal Democrat Distinguished Service Award is made each year to a party member who has never been elected to public office and who has demonstrated excellence and commitment.

Harriet Smith was an all-round Liberal and Liberal Democrat good egg and was also a member of the Liberator collective. She died in 2006 and there are some lovely tributes to her in Liberator 312 (that link downloads a pdf of the whole issue).

Edith Weston, despite what Lord Bonkers will tell you, is not a charming girl. She is a village on the shores of Rutland Water.
