We were sorry to hear of the death of Lady Monckton, photographed here back in October 2018 at the launch of the Heart of Kent Hospice Anna Chaplaincy team.

Described as a 'passionate supporter and patron' and with a 'devilish sense of humour',

Marianna, viscountess Monckton of Brenchley died peacefully at her home in the county earlier this month. She was 93 years old.

As a stalwart supporter of local causes, Lady Monckton's obituaries which appear in several papers this week paint a vivid picture of 'a tireless local activist and a frequent writer of pithy letters to The Telegraph.'
