The Trustees awarded the Kew Guild medal to the family in 2022 to recognise this important contribution. The family also played a big part in the organisation of the Annual Dinner and Richard was the main organiser between 1978 and 2010, as well as being Master of Ceremonies. This, along with the support of Wiena, Alexandra and Sparkle at the event helped to make many lovely evenings and memories for members.
The Ward family embody the spirit and friendship of the Kew Guild, opening their home to so many Kewites over the years.
The Trustees thank them all for their hard and dedicated work.
