Andrew Lord Phillips of Sudbury, OBE
Andrew trained as a solicitor with his Father's firm in Sudbury, and was former Chancellor of the University of Essex. In 1998, Andrew was made a Life Peer, which dominated his activities until he resigned in 2016. He is perhaps proudest of founding several national and local charities, mainly directed towards improving Justice for the ordinary Citizen. Andrew takes an active part in Town life, having a unique record of helping save local landmarks, starting with the Corn Exchange, and was in at the foundation of the Sudbury Society, drafting its constitution. His father was first Chair.
Andrew has been a committed Sudburian all his life.
David came to live in the town when Cornard Upper School opened in 1973. Retirement from teaching gave him more time to explore the history and also the distinctive architecture of the local area. He has written a number of books and pamphlets on local history, had a major role in the creation and, now, the day to day running of the Heritage Centre in Gaol Lane and also the management of its website. He took over the Chairmanship of the Sudbury Society from the redoubtable Betty Bone in the early 2000s and during his spell as Chairman worked with Babergh District Council to create the Sudbury Local List. One of his concerns as a member of the Society Planning Group is to try to ensure that both nationally and locally listed buildings in Sudbury are given the recognition and protection that they deserve.
