Patrons

In the beginning, Lady Barbara Huddleston Abney-Hastings, 13th Countess of Loudoun was our patron and Lady Edith McLaren, an associate patron.  Sadly Lady Barbara died in 2002 and her son, Michael Abney-Hastings,  who had now become 14th Earl of Loudoun, became our patron.

Michael, Earl of Loudoun died in 2012 in Australia, just a few years after his marriage to Margaret, and his son, Simon now became the 15th Earl of Loudoun and is our current patron.

We also have two associate patrons, Lord Des Brown and a local business man, John Sharp.

Des Browne lived close to Loudoun Kirk for some years and has always taken an interest in our project.

John Sharpe is a well respected business man, living locally.
