UKIP Cornwall Events
|Mon 12th Feb||
Dave Hicks Memorial Event.
An evening at The Queens Hotel Penzance Promenade on Monday 12th February 2018 at 7.00 pm
Mike Hookem, MEP for Northern Region & UKIP Spokesman for Fisheries
Mick Mahon, Bob Smith and Deborah Cowley
Dave Hicks was a fisherman who worked from Mousehole and knew the Fishing Industry as well as anyone. On his retirement, he lived in Hayle and kept a close association with what was happening generally, often coming to meetings to express his views.
He was a great character, Cornish through and through, with a strident voice to match. He could hold an audience's attention and few, if any, were able to fault or correct him.
Dave died very suddenly last year to the great shock of everyone who knew him. It turned out that he kept his illness quiet preferring not to say anything. We must respect his wishes for his decision but a number of close friends and colleagues have expressed a wish that his passing should be marked by some form of special event which would promote and enhance his life's work which was dedicated to exiting the EU.
He was a great supporter of UKIP and it is felt appropriate to arrange a public event to which everyone in the Fishing Industry, everyone who knew Dave, and all UKIP members are welcome to attend.
We thank Bob and Deborah for their arrangements to put this evening together.
Please come and make it a great success.
It will be helpful if you will indicate that you will attend so we have an idea of numbers.
