As many of you will already know we have recently heard of the sad deaths of two much loved members of our club, Ken and Kieran
Ken Knowles who died on Saturday joined Redhill in 1972 and was one of our first members. He was a previous Chairman, Records Officer and County Rep. He and his late wife Mim and sons Howard & Carl have been big part of the Redhill family.
Ken was a real gent who always had a twinkle in his eye, a wicked sense of humour and time for others.
His funeral is expected to be on Friday 28th October.
Our thoughts are with Howard, Hazel, Carl and the family.
Kieran and Liz joined us in 2009. They married in 2014. Kieran was our Vice Chairman and a Club Coach. Kieran was a lovely man with a smile that lit up a room and great enthusiasm for helping others. He lost his fight against Cancer on Wednesday but the strength and dignity he showed has been humbling.
Our thoughts are with Liz, and with Kieran’s family at this difficult time.
