The Blog is sad to report the death of Lord Waddington, probably South Cheriton’s most illustrious resident, on February 24th.
He was a politician and barrister who served his country and his party well. His roots were in Lancashire, and he served as a Conservative MP and held a number of key political appointments, including Chief Whip. Home Secretary and Leader of the House of Lords.
He was well known and liked in South Cheriton, where he and Gilly chose to retire, and was a familiar figure as he walked his dog around the village.
We send our condolences to Lady Waddington and the family
