It was only recently that the following notice appeared on the Parish Website:-
“Wroughton Parish Council would like to mark the outstanding contribution to our community made by Parish Councillor Ann Richards and announce her well-deserved retirement.
Over the years Ann has been a School Governor, Library Trustee and Borough Councillor. She has served on Wroughton Parish Council for more than twenty years and is a font of all knowledge. Ann has been a leading figure in Girl Guiding in Wroughton and for the Trefoil Guild as well.
Everyone will very much miss her and would like to say a huge thank you for all that she done for the Parish of Wroughton.”
