Barry Jackson MBE: Memorial Service

 A Memorial Service commemorating the life of the late Barry Jackson MBE will take place at Lincoln Cathedral on Friday 3rd March at 12 noon. All industry friends are welcome to attend.

BMJ was saddened to hear of the death of Barry last month. He was managing director of the family firm Jackson Building Centres for many years, until the company was sold to Grafton Group and came under the Buildbase banner. He was also a BMF Past President and Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants.

BMJ editor-in-chief Fiona Russell Horne said: “Barry was such a nice man and I have some lovely memories of evenings spent at industry functions in his convivial company. Our sympathies and best wishes lie with Judith, Sue, Simon and the rest of his family and friends.”
