It is with great sadness that Ruth Lennox (nee Rushall) passed away on 23rd September of bone cancer, only diagnosed a week before.

For those who didn't know her, Ruth (sister of Mark) and her husband Rob Lennox were stalwarts of the Lark class for many years. The double act of Rob as Chairman and Ruth as secretary worked tirelessly to steer the class through the peak, with 120 boat Nationals. They also found time to win many events and nearly won the Nationals, only being beaten by Ruth's brother Mark and wife Liz on the last beat of the last race!

Ruth's service of thanksgiving will take place at 2pm on 16 October at St Andrews Church, Sandhills Rd, Barnt Green, Birmingham, B45 8NR and afterwards at The Parish Centre next door.

The family have said no flowers, but would be delighted if you wanted to make a donation to Cancer Research UK

If you are planning to attend it would be very helpful if you could RSVP to Liz Rushall at

For those who may want to send messages to the family the address is: North Farm, Kendall End Farm, Barnt Green, Birmingham, B45 8PU
