Honorary memberships At our recent EGM we presented our former Chairperson, Doreen Jaap, with a 25+ years long service award on behalf of the British International Federation of Festivals. We also presented both Doreen and husband John with Honorary Memberships for the Perform in Dumfries (DDMFA) for their hard work and commitment over many, many years. We are sure you will join us in thanking them both for helping to build and sustain the festival - they will be missed!
