Civic Award for Roger Kingwell



Wymondham Town Mayor, Cllr. Neil Ward was pleased to present Moya

Kingwell with a civic award in memorium to her late husband Roger.

Roger passed away sadly on 29th January 2011 following a brave fight

against cancer. A retired Town Planner and a keen member of the Catholic

Church and Wymondham Lions He was elected President of the club for the

year 2002/03. He was the lead organiser of the club’s big event,

“Dickensian Evening” for many years until 2009. The ongoing success of

this event, so enjoyed by the people of Wymondham, is very much due to

the hard work that he put into its organisation.

Roger was also a keen gardener and helped organise Wymondham's biannual

Open Gardens Event opening his own courtyard garden in Vicar Street.

This event gave pleasure to many and helped raise funds for East

Anglia’s Childrens’ Hospices, a charity particularly close to his heart.

Cllr. Ward commented ' Roger was a true community champion who was

always pleased to help in any way he could and he has been greatly

missed. The Town Council unanimously decided that they wished to mark

his contribution to the life of the Town by making this award to Moya'.
