It is with regret that we announce that Rosemary Fost passed away peacefully on 11th March 2013. Rosemary was a Committee Member of the McCarrison Society as well as a Trustee and former Chair of the Pioneer Health Foundation where, in recent years, she had started and ran the Mary Langman Prize Competition.
From the Pioneer Health Foundation: "Rosemary Fost enthused about the Peckham Experiment when doing a BPhil at Oxford by a doctor cousin sent to ‘observe’. She later joined the Soil Association and the National Childbirth Trust (then the Natural Childbirth Association) researching the biology of birth and bonding, as Hon Sec Education Committee and editor of the NCT Newsletter. A family fed from ‘Wholefood’, Baker Street, enabled close links with Mary Langman, the personal assistant of Scott Williamson, and colleague of Eve Balfour."
A Memorial Service will be announced in due course.
