It was with great sadness that we heard of Clive Richards’ death. The day he arrived in Herefordshire was a happy one for the county.


The impact he had on the public services we all enjoy was broad-based and forward-looking. It covered from education to health and enterprise and, of course, sport.

We all know of a school, club, hospital or aspiring young person who have benefited from his generosity.

He was a dear friend and will be greatly missed. Sylvia was the love of his life and our hearts go out to her.

In loving memory.
