Farewell to Sandringham Estate Land Agent
In May 2018 the Association held an evening reception in the Museum and Stables Courtyard, Sandringham House for Sir Marcus O’Lone on his retirement after 20 years as Land Agent of the Sandringham Estate.
SARWH presented Sir Marcus with a painting by Rebecca Lloyd of Brancaster on the North Norfolk Coast.
The following year a similar event was held to welcome the new Sandringham Land Agent, Mr Edward Parsons.
October 2018 SARWH held a unique and very successful Business Luncheon at the Grand Hall, St Martin’s House, Leicester, adjacent to the Cathedral, attended by over 80 members.
Dr Richard Buckley CBE, the leader of the archaeological project to locate the remains of Richard III was the speaker. Members enjoyed a lunch menu which replicated that served to Her Majesty the Queen on the occasion when she visited the Cathedral for the Maundy service. Members of the Association were also invited to the Cathedral to view the tomb of Richard III.
The event was sponsored by Paul Gooding and his company Vitax with the beautiful table flowers donated by Rosemary Mason of Rosemary Hughes Flowers.
