Virginia Routh Lynch is an analytical psychologist, and psychotherapist. She worked for the NHS at Ashford Hospital, Middlesex and in private practice in Chiswick. Virginia is 87, which most people think is old, but that is not how she feels, nor is it how she behaves. She is energetic, enthusiastic and enjoys organising things.
Virginia is a Londoner but has also lived in Sussex near Rye and in Kent in Sutton Valence. Since moving to Studland 18 months ago, one of the most beautiful places in England, she has become involved in village life. She has taught several people in the village how to play bridge and has now started a bridge club. She led a campaign to get a pedestrian crossing for the village. In May, she is taking on the chairmanship of the Purbeck University of the Third Age.
She goes frequently to concerts of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Their brilliant performances have inspired her to donate the royalties of The Cloak to the orchestra.
