Dear Member

On behalf of the YABA membership I would like to pay tribute to the outstanding YABA Special Award winner Sir Kenneth Duncan Morrison, Former Chief Executive of W Morrison’s. At 21 years of age, Sir Ken grew his small family market stalls into one of the UKs big four grocers worth £6billion FTSE 100 supermarket chain, known as a ‘straight talking’ business man Sir Ken has left a very valuable legacy for Yorkshire, he will surely be remembered and missed. Our sincerest condolences go out to Sir Ken’s grieving family.
