A lifelong tenant of Lacock, Leo Stevens dedicated his life to the National Trust and its tenants.

Instrumental in the introduction of fair rents for protected tenants and a founding member of TANT in 2002 he was vocal and passionate about ensuring rights for tenants and we were proud to have him as our President.

In his defence of tenant rights Leo would always put forward a passionate argument, tempered by dry humour and gentle wit, to effect change and maintain long standing relationships.

The TANT committee will not be the same without him and we offer our sincerest condolences to his family whom he loved dearly and the Lacock community who, we know, will be missing the presence of this great man.
