National Trust loses a loyal supporter

The Solihull Centre has learnt with great regret of the death of John Tickell in Solihull Hospital on Christmas Day.

John was a devoted member of the National Trust and in 2005 he was elected to the Committee of the Solihull Centre.  After the death of Don Kettle John took over the duties of producing the Master Diary with its invaluable information of events and Committee Meetings thereby avoiding clashes of dates and enabling efficient planning. 

In addition to this responsibility, John was a respected member of Committee known for his sensible comments and views and was a valued for his kind and friendly manner, consequently he will be greatly missed.

The committee expresses its sincere sympathy to his widow, Jessie and his family.

The funeral will be held at 11.30 on Friday 15 January at St George’s and St Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church in Dorridge.
