  • The Freemen of Oxford Send Our Best Wishes...
    The Rt Hon Earl of Bathurst is the Patron of the Freemen of England and Wales and was due to attend the recent AGM meeting in York.
    Around a month earlier, he was suddenly taken ill with a severe allergic reaction and was on life support for several weeks. Thankfully he is over the worst but is on a long road to recovery.
    He describes himself as a farmer and was distraught he could not help with this years harvest. He is now learning emailing from his bed.
    This is posted on our website as the Earl Bathurst lives close by at Cirencester Park. The Freemen of Gloucester have sent him a get well card. The Freemen of Oxford send our best wishes for a speedy return to full health and fitness.
