27th October 1932 – 30th March 2022
It was with sadness that we learned the Chairman of the Ruddington Branch of the Royal British Legion, Ken Hicks, passed away on 30th March 2022. He was a member of The Royal British Legion for nearly 50 years and helped to plan the Parade and the Service for Remembrance in Ruddington for many years.
Ken lived in Ruddington for 74 years and was always involved in village life. He was one of the first volunteers for the Community Bus, volunteered at Ruddington Police Station and was Chairman of our Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
At the Nottinghamshire Royal British Legion County Awards Presentation Evening on 11th April 2022, Ken was posthumously awarded the highest standard for his service to the British Legion. It was accepted by his sons, Mark and Ian. The event was also attended by Ken’s widow, Marilyn.
We offer our condolences to Ken’s family and friends.
