THE RACING POST MONDAY AUGUST 22nd 2011
DOREEN RACKHAM FAREWELL TO THE ANGEL OF LAMBOURNTributes flow following the death of one of Lambourn’s best-loved personalities
BROUGH SCOTT recalls a saintly figure who was close to so many hearts.
“Village post mistress who delivered smiles and inspiration for everyone. She was much, much more than a good deed in a naughty world. Doreen Rackham was as near a saint as our little universe is likely to provide. In the last few weeks scores of us have filed into her bedroom at Oaksey House in search of one last glimpse of that very special smile. To think of Doreen is to sense that smile and all the goodness that it carried in its wake. Politicians can talk of the big society. In Lambourn Doreen Rackham lived it.
