The Governors of Bruton School for Girls are delighted to confirm that the current Lord-Lieutenant for Somerset, Mrs Anne Maw, is to become a patron of the school.
Mrs Maw was appointed by the Queen in March 2015 as the Crown’s permanent representative in Somerset. Mrs Maw is a trustee of charities supporting young athletes in Somerset; supporting those with disabilities; and specifically supporting those with spinal injuries in the West Country.
She was a Director and is now a Council Member of the Royal Bath and West Society; Vice-President of the Friends and guide of Wells Cathedral; and particularly close to her heart are all matters related to education in the county of Somerset, alongside the care of elderly people and the activities of the Hospice movement. Mrs Maw was a State Registered Nurse and previously High Sheriff of Somerset.
Mr David Batten, the Chairman of Governors of Bruton School for Girls, said: “Mrs Maw’s appointment as patron, in addition to our current patron Lady Gass DCVO, the former Lord-Lieutenant for Somerset, brings an added dimension, experience and a passion for education, which will greatly enhance the school. We look forward to working with Annie.”
