It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Anne Rolinson who died on Sunday 23rd February 2020.
Anne was very well known as Anne Hammond who owned and ran the renowned Millfields Riding Establishment at Stetchworth near Newmarket. She bought her first Connemara in 1967 and bred many beautiful ponies with the Millfields prefix.
When Millfields was sold, Anne moved to Hepworth, where she lived with her husband Frank and continued to breed ponies. Anne gave her time freely to help the BCPS and judged Connemara ponies all over the world. Suzi Wicks came to work for Anne at the age of 15 and was responsible for many successes with the ponies. In later years, she cared for Anne and Frank, her husband and was with Anne at home when she died. Our thoughts are with her and the family.
The Eastern Region is a poorer place having lost two such wonderful members in very few months.
