Ian ‘Boony’ Lennard

This is the post from Ian Lennard’s Employers Yesss Electrical, just shows how much Ian was thought of R.I.P.

Dear all contacts, friends, and colleagues on LinkedIn,

It is with a very heavy heart that we have to inform everyone that sadly Ian Lennard, our London Regional Manager, passed away suddenly on Sunday morning as a result of a massive heart attack on Saturday.

We are all absolutely devastated to hear this news as Ian was a truly wonderful man and not just a colleague but a personal friend to many people here at YESSS and the wider electrical wholesale community.

Ian had an absolute indomitable presence within our industry with over 30+ years served, with successful careers as a branch manager, was one of the founding members of YESSS Electrical in 2012 and built a fantastic business within his London region over 10 years, and the camaraderie amongst his regional branches and staff were built from mutual respect and the odd game of golf.

For all that knew him, Ian had a smashing sense of humour and always had a story or experience that would capture the audience and we will no doubt recall them when remembering Ian with a smile.

Ian leaves behind his wife Tracey, as well as 2 teenage daughters Lily and Mia, and our hearts go out to them all at this desperately sad time.

RIP Ian, we will never forget you and will remember all the good times together!

Old Rutlishians’ AFC achieve Charter Standard Status

We are pleased to announce that the Club has been awarded the Club Charter Standard by the FA, an accreditation given to those clubs recognised by the FA as being an excellent example of well-run clubs with fantastic offerings. We continually work hard off the pitch to ensure that every aspect of the club both on and off the pitch meets the stringent criteria set out by the FA. We are proud to be able to say that we have passed the test.

If anyone is interested as to what this involves and the benefits of being a Charter Standard Club, please click the link below: 


The FA website states “The FA Charter Standard accreditation is for clubs who can be proud to be places where people want to play. These are the clubs who demonstrate they offer well-run and sustainable football. Clubs who achieve Charter Standard status are proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA’s Respect campaign as part of their game.”
