David Blomfield

It is with great sadness that we pass on the news that David Blomfield, one of the Patrons of the Kew Society, died on Tuesday surrounded by his family at home. He has been a Patron of the Kew Society for many years in addition to his many other roles in the community, including a Lib Dem Councillor for 17 years, Chair and then President of the Richmond Local History Society, a school Governor, JP, book editor and writer of local history. He will be sorely missed. As current Chair of the Kew Society,  I will particularly miss his wise counsel and level-headed advice. We will let members know of the funeral arrangements. I would like to extend our sincerest condolences to his wife Caroline and all of David’s family.

Caroline Brock, Chair
