Welcome to Barking Music and Drama
Ald. Fred Jones MBE
Ald. F.C. Jones, MBE
It is with great sadness that Barking Music and Drama has to announce the death of its President, Ald. Fred Jones. Fred became President of Barking MAD in 1993 and over the next twenty-three years was a very active Patron. He attended all general meetings and his association with the Borough Council afforded the Company valuable connections and channels of communication. He was a constant member of our front-of-house teams, selling programmes and raffle tickets and meeting and greeting audiences. He was extremely generous with his donations to the Company, especially for after-show parties and always helped with the breakdown at the end of a production run. Fred Jones was a great servant to the people of Barking and Dagenham and one of its real characters. He will be sorely missed in many areas of community life and Barking MAD has lost one of its greatest supporters.
