I met Anne after I joined The Friends of Tewkesbury Abbey some 25 to 30 years ago, she was Chairperson and was welcoming to a non-Tewkesbury member, she asked where I lived and when I responded "Southport" she became quiet and then told me that a beloved family member had died there following a car crash. I told her that I had been a serving police officer at the time of the crash and remembered the event vividly, she was almost shocked that a total stranger remembered the tragedy. I met her from time to time over the years at the Abbey and last July I visited her at her home, it was a lovely occasion for me, she was as always positive, pin-sharp, full of humour and good sense, despite her health issues. I had immense respect and affection for Anne and am so sorry that she has left us all. I offer my condolences to her children and extended family of whom she was so proud. I will miss her, and will never forget having met her.
With deepest sympathy, from Sylvia, my labradors Molly and Emmy who she met over the years and my corgi called Tiz.

I was at Uppingham School between 1982 and 1987, and in 1986 I was lucky enough - with Adrian Johnston - to be given the Ian Cadbury Travel Award, set up in memory of Anne's late son, so we could undertake a 2-week inter-rail trip to northern Italy that summer. It was a mind-opening experience, not only giving us experience in navigating foreign travel as almost-adults in an age before the internet and mobile phone, but bringing us into close contact with the rich architectural and artistic culture of northern Italy between the 15th and 18th centuries. We spent a number of days in each of Verona, Venice and Milan, and had further day-trips to Bologna and Vicenza. Though I didn't realise it at the time, it was life-changing; in 1988 I went up to Oxford, and I am now a Professor of Early Modern History at St Andrews, specialising in the history of France and (a bit less) northern Italy in the 17th-18th centuries. I therefore owe the Cadbury family much, and though it must be a great sadness to lose Anne, I hope it is a small comfort that her initiation of and continued interest in this award affected several score of us profoundly. Thank you, Anne.
