Message from Chuck Venables – March 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce that our colleague Chris Ball suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on Sunday the 12th of March.


Chris was an integral ‘behind the scenes’ figure for us here at Venables, offering his guidance, support and strength to the management team.

His mentorship here at VB has played an invaluable part in the progress that the business has achieved and one that we are all hugely grateful for.


Chris was a great source of strength to me personally as I came to terms with working day to day in the business after my brother Paul’s death in 2018 and Chris’s positive encouragement and support will be greatly missed and never forgotten.


We are all struggling to come to terms with this very unexpected news and our thoughts and prayers go out to Suzanne and their family at this difficult time
