Leicestershire VCH Trust welcomes Mike Kapur OBE as our new President

When Leicestershire VCH Trust was formed in 2008, we were delighted that Jennifer, Lady Gretton, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, accepted our invitation to become our President. Lady Gretton stood down as Lord-Lieutenant this year, and has also stood down from her office as President of Leicestershire VCH Trust. We are very grateful for everything she has done over the last ten years to help and support our project, to help us to bring it to wider attention across the county. She  has  attended  many  of our events including the official launch of the Trust at  Quenby Hall in 2009, the launch of our first book last year at Castle Donington and hosted a memorable day at Beaumanor with the Herrick Family Association from the USA.

We are very pleased that Mike Kapur OBE, the new Lord-Lieutenant of our county, has agreed to become our new President. We extend a warm welcome to him, and look forward to informing him of our achievements and future plans.
