Phuket memorial for Ken Brookes

PHUKET: Friends and family will be gathering at a memorial event in memory of Phuket publisher Ken Brookes on Sunday, September 4.

Mr Brookes passed away in the United Kingdom on August 10, 2011.

The gathering will be held from from 2pm to 4pm at the Happy Hut Restaurant, located on the left of the entrance to the Ao Po Marina in Pa Khlok.

Special rates on food and beverages will be offered for the occasion.

“Geoff, Ken’s son and I feel this is most appropriate for Ken,” said widow Lori Ashton.

“We let his ashes off at Mumbles Pier, Swansea Wales last week. Two of his great uncles were lifeboat men there and are commemorated on the walls,” she said.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution are suggested.
