Cyril to receive civic honour

Cyril Leason, who has organised the Historic Hardwick Hall Road Race since the 1980s, is to be honoured for his dedication and hard work.

Cyril, 72, will collect an Derbyshire County Council-backed Excellence in the Community Award at the Devonshire Dome, Buxton, on Monday.

Pilsley-based Cyril is planning the 30th running of the Hardwick race to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics.
