Member news banner

Please find following a message from Bob’s family:

“Bob was an amazing man who helped so many people throughout his life.  He worked tirelessly to help people in his work at Westcombe Industries and as a member of Peterborough City Rowing Club for most of his life he helped many people especially young people to progress in the sport.

“We know it is not only our loss and you grieve with us, so let’s celebrate his life together to help us all through this difficult time.

“In the last few days we asked Bob if he needed any shopping.  Thinking there may be some food or drink he would like.  He said very firmly that he would like a racing boat.  A very fast racing boat. We would like to honour his wish and donate a boat to Peterborough City Rowing Club. If you would like to donate to Bob’s Boat Fund please click here

“As a family it would mean a great deal to us if you could take some time to share your memories, thoughts, feelings or funny stories.  He loved a funny story. This book isn’t intended for sadness or sorrow we would like everyone to use it as a place to celebrate Bob’s life.

“Please take time to post your photographs, videos, memories or stories and celebrate the life of a truly remarkable man with us.”
