It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Dongria Kohdh, otherwise known as Penny Eastwood. She will be sorely missed in the Hebden Royd community and beyond. 

Cllr Nikki Harvey said: “A truly inspirational woman who has left such a legacy. I believe our hedgerow at High Hirst may have been the last project she was so personally involved with and I remember her insisting she wanted to visit the site and climbing over the gate to access it at the end of last year! We learnt so much from her knowledge and vision.”
