Tributes To Peter Ainsworth

Across social media users’ timelines are statements that show respect, admiration, and gratitude towards Ainsworth as people mourn the passing.

“We are very sad to have to announce the sudden passing of our Chair of Trustees, Peter Ainsworth. He has been a passionate advocate for heritage and will be greatly missed.

Peter was appointed Chairman of The Churches Conservation Trust in July 2016 and was made Chair of the Heritage Alliance in 2018. Latterly he also sat on the Rhodes Commission.

Peter has given over 30 years of commitment to public life and has made a significant contribution to the heritage sector. His involvement in heritage dates back to 1995, when he was appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for National Heritage. He was a member of the DCMS Select Committee in 2009-10.

Peter’s parliamentary career also saw him serve as Shadow Secretary of State for Culture and Shadow Secretary of State of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. He was Member of Parliament for East Surrey for 18 years until 2010.

Peter was UK Chair of the Big Lottery Fund (Now National Lottery Community Fund) from 2011 to 2019 and was a Board member of the Environment Agency. He was also previously Chairman of Plantlife International and the Elgar Foundation.

A former investment banker, Peter was a founding partner of sustainability consultancy the Robertsbridge Group. He was also a Patron of the College of St Barnabas, a residential community of retired Anglican clergy in Lingfield, Surrey.

Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for DCMS said “It is with deep sadness that I learned today of Peter’s death. He was unfailingly kind, charming and a committed public servant, which he demonstrated most recently as a passionate Chair of the Churches Conservation Trust and the Heritage Alliance. We will miss him greatly, and my thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.”
The Churches Conservation Trust is really grateful for Peter’s five years as Chair, seeing the organisation through a change of Chief Executive, the implementation of a new strategy and the pandemic.
At the Heritage Alliance, Peter chaired the organisation through the pandemic which has greatly affected many of our members, and we are grateful for the way in which he both supported the Alliance’s growth and tirelessly championed our 150+ organisations in a time of great need.
Peter was passionate about effecting positive change and ensuring heritage is understood as a public good.
Our thoughts are with Peter’s family at this time.”

I am extremely sad to hear the news about Peter Ainsworth today. My heart goes out to his wife Claire and to his family.

He had been wonderfully kind and supportive to me since I’d been elected. Even now, every time his name comes up with local residents, it’s clear to me how much he touched people’s lives and how highly he was regarded for his work in East Surrey.
In recent years his work on the Environment has helped to set us on a path to a greener future. From his work as the Shadow Secretary of State for DEFRA, to his expert Chairmanship on the Environmental Audit Committee, to his work on the Board of the Environment Agency.
As I said in my maiden speech he was a green giant of a politician and one who will be missed by many.
“All of us are saddened to hear the news that former Conservative East Surrey MP Peter Ainsworth has passed away. Peter was MP for East Surrey from 1992 to 2010 and was a well known face and respected figure in the area. Our thoughts are with all of his family, friends, and colleagues at this time.”
