A tribute statement on behalf of Lucem House Community Cinema Plus+
Len has had a close and personal relationship with Lucem House Community Cinema Plus+ since 2015. Apart from enriching the film nights with his theatrical, poetic and musical performances, Len was the first friendly person people met when they visited the cinema.
Len has helped to build the super-large screen that graces the stage, has installed seating, helped to refurbish the kitchen and generally took care of the premises. He helped to make Lucem House a safe and happy venue for volunteers and visitors alike.
Len was a kind, generous and gentle soul, we all loved him dearly. On behalf of myself and all his fellow volunteers we are devastated at his loss. His contribution and presence at the cinema will be keenly missed. Our thoughts are with his beloved family at this time.
We will keep you all informed about commemorative and celebration of life arrangements as and when events are announced by the family. Your support and messages of condolences are much appreciated by Len’s family, please add your messages to our special tribute page that we have set up for the purpose.
Ann Shacklady-Smith, Founder and Director, Lucem House Community Cinema Plus+
