Local Senedd Member Nick Ramsay has paid tribute to former Raglan resident Anna Tribe OBE who has passed away at the age of 90.

Mrs Tribe was for many years a well known local figure, a longstanding member of the Monmouth Conservative Association and leading light of the Nelson Society, as the great-great-great granddaughter of Vice Admiral Lord Horacio Nelson.

Speaking today (Tuesday), Mr Ramsay said: “I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Anna Tribe.

“Anna was a wonderful person, a loyal supporter of many good causes and a fantastic advocate of her great-great-great grandfather Lord Nelson.

“I first got to know Anna through our mutual involvement in local politics. She became a good friend over the years and was always a source of sound advice and support.

“Anna was one of a kind and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with her family at this time.”
