Barry Philips, Honorary Director

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of The Kingsway BIA’s honorary director, Barry Philips. He was a cherished friend and colleague and the originator of many BIA initiatives including Taste of The Kingsway.
Barry will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Words of comfort and support during this difficult time are deeply appreciated.
May Barry rest in eternal peace, and may his memory be a blessing to us all.
With heartfelt condolences, The Kingsway BIA Board of Management.
