Handcross Mourns the Passing of our Patron Lord Snowdon

Lord Snowdon

Lord Snowdon our Patron has sadly passed away in January at the age of 86.

Lord Snowdon, former husband of the Princess Margaret, established himself as one of Britain's most respected photographers in fashion, design and theatre and became a renowned photographer of royalty.

Lord Snowdon had a strong association with Handcross, having spent much of his childhood at Nymans, now a National Trust Property in the village.  We were very honoured when, in 1996, Lord Snowdon agreed to become President of our then recently formed Petanque Club.

He is sadly missed.
