Ray Key BEM

Ray Key

It is with deep regret that I have to inform you that Ray Key BEM, president of the AWGB passed away on the evening of the 14th of September. Ray was a founder member of the AWGB and has been involved throughout the 31 years of the association’s existence in roles including chairman and president. He was a source of inspiration to so many with his exquisite turnings pure of form that needed no colour or embellishment to stand out.

Our thoughts are with Ray’s wife Liz and son Darren at this sad time.

Paul Hannaby, AWGB Chairman
