Friday, 28 September 2018

It is with great sadness that ICME can report that Les Rivers, of ‘Rivers Media’, died on 19th September, following a short illness.

His funeral will take place on Friday 5th October at 9.45am at Hereford Crematorium followed by burial at Hereford Cemetery and wake at The Left Bank Hereford.
Flowers are welcome and/or donations to the Salvation Army.

Les had led the advertising sales, with his company carrying out the production and printing of the many ICME publications for many years, working alongside the editor of FOUNDRYMAN since 1989. Subsequently he continued to do the same for Foundry Trade Journal, working with Editor Lynn Postle, when the two journals came together with the purchase of FTJ by ICME. He continued in this role for the new owner when ICME sold the journal, right up until his recent illness.

Many ICME members will have known Les as he attended branch events as well as national and international conferences and dinners over the years and he will be sadly missed by all those who had the good fortune to work with him.
