Derbyshire County Council has bestowed an honorary title upon Beth Atkins in recognition of her significant contribution to the authority's work over many years.


Elizabeth 'Beth' Atkins represented the division of New Mills for 16 years following her first election in 2005, for a time also serving as the main speaker for the Liberal Democrat group on the council.


Recipients of the title are presented with a badge of recognition and all will have their names recorded on a roll of honour.


While they will not have any special rights to participate in the meetings of the council or its committees, they will be invited to civic ceremonies, meetings and events and will be addressed by their courtesy title in official business.
