Judy Weleminsky, who lives in Kew and is a member of our society, was brought up in Yorkshire and has a master’s degree in organisational psychology from the University of Lancaster. Judy first met Tony Rampton in 1975 when, newly arrived in London, she applied for the job of community relations officer in Lambeth and Tony was on the interview panel that appointed her. In 1993, when she was chief executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, Judy and her family had just moved to the area and were exploring Petersham when they came across Tony and his wife Joan. They were subsequently invited to have afternoon tea with them – and to view Tony’s paintings – at their home. Tony died only a few months later, in December 1993.
