In Memory of Keith Parker

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Keith Parker OBE, a former member of the Club, over the weekend.

As former editor and managing director of the Shropshire Star and the Express and Star newspapers Keith championed the cause of the local press and he paved the way for the Express and Star to become the country’s largest selling regional paper.

Keith was a true gentleman whose passing will be mourned by all who came into contact with him and our thoughts are with his wife and family.

Keith’s funeral will be held at St Michael & All Angels Church, Church Road, Tettenhall, Wolverhampton WV6 9AJ at 2.00p.m. on Wednesday the 11th August. There will be family flowers only at the funeral, but donations to Compton Hospice can be made c/o Harry Edwards & Sons, Funeral Directors, 1 High Street, Wellington, TF1 1JW.
