Stuart Hawkins (1924-2019)

Bob Mizon of The Commission for Dark Skies has informed us of the sad news that Stuart Hawkins, a member of the CfDS committee since its earliest days, passed away peacefully this week. Stuart worked quietly but doggedly over the years to persuade organisations as big as DEFRA and as small as his local supermarket to promote sensible lighting practices, and until recent years helped with CfDS events in southern England. To quote Bob "We’ve lost a great friend and campaigner".
