We were saddened to hear of the death of Sir Roger Bannister CH, CBE, on 3 March. Sir Roger had a long association with Cumberland Lodge, first as a trustee and more recently as an Honorary Life Fellow. 

Sir Roger and Lady Bannister were regular visitors to the Lodge, and Sir Roger helped launch our popular Cumberland Conversation series as one of its first contributors in 2004. We are grateful for all that Sir Roger contributed to the life and work of Cumberland Lodge, and extend our deepest sympathy to Lady Bannister and the family.
