Graham's death was very sudden and unexpected and the Kew Guild Board are in shock. We know some of you knew him very well and we will let members know of the funeral arrangements as soon as they are available. The Board has sent their condolences on behalf of the Guild to Graham’s wife and family. If you have any kind words of remembrance, please send these to our Secretary Sara, and they will be passed on. Until the AGM in September, our Vice President, Robert Brett will be taking the helm, supported by the Immediate Past President, Chris Kidd and President Elect, Richard Barley. Graham was a kind and gentle soul and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
