It was another sad news day today – When I heard that Wolverhampton had lost another Champion. Baroness Rachael Heyhoe-Flint was a real Wulfrunian in the way she promoted the City, Sport and of course The Wolves.
I met her on numerous occasions over the years. She always had a smile, and she always had a barbed comment about my football support! But both Mary and I liked her immensely.
She was also a very energetic Deputy Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands County. Wolverhampton can be very proud of Baroness Heyhoe-Flint. She was also a Freeman of the City of Wolverhampton, and a very dear friend of the City.
Deepest Sympathy and condolences to her closest family and friends!
Rest in Peace you made a huge impression in all the fields that you served.
