Ron Williams

Our dear friend Ron Williams passed away last week after a short illness. For many years, Ron played a big part in helping keep Bidston Hill and Flaybrick Cemetery suitably maintained for the local community, along with all other volunteers. In addition, every Saturday morning he would head a guided walk through Flaybrick and across Bidston Hill and was very popular with participants, some of which would regularly return time and again. From my knowledge, I think Ron was involved with other local volunteer groups offering his services because he enjoyed this so much. Ron was also the piano/keyboard player with the Northern Rhythm Swing Band, playing at local venues including Heswall Hall and Gladstone Theatre. In addition, he was a member of the Wirral Community Choir. Ron took pride in everything he did and showed a passion for getting involved locally and he will be greatly missed. Ron’s funeral service will take place on Thursday, 28th June, at St John the Divine Church, Frankby at 12:30pm, then on to Landican Crematorium for 1:30.

    Ron was the salt of the earth. On his Royden walks he always warmly welcomed new walkers and said of the regulars, “All the usual suspects”.

    RIP Ron, you will never walk alone, all your friends will always be walking with you.

    Royden Park will be planting a Rowan tree with a plaque in his memory this week. He led the Thursday Health Walking group there for many years. This is a link to the location of where the tree will be planted by the pathway. I hope you can visit his tree one day. Best wishes.
