A Tribute to Lady Wroughton
who died on 14 February, 2022
In the summer of 2009 at the formal launch of the Berkshire Gardens Trust at Englefield House, Lady Wroughton was appointed our first President and she continued in this role until 2018. Over these nine years, apart from presiding at our AGMs, Lady Wroughton and her husband Sir Philip, a long serving Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire, attended many of our events. Lady Wroughton’s smile would light up any occasion.
One of our summer events was a visit to the beautiful gardens of Woolley Park, the ancestral home of Sir Philip, and it was on this occasion that Lady Wroughton was made an honorary life member of the Trust.
The support that Lady Wroughton and Sir Philip gave to the newly-formed Trust is something that we will always remember with gratitude.
