Bob was a Winchcombe resident and retired Managing Director of the former Evans Adlard Paper Mill at Postlip. It was Bob’s vision to provide a Centre where the elderly and lonely in the community could go for companionship.
Despite years of problems a determined Bob achieved his dream and the doors opened to the first seven members in the communal room of the Langley Close, Sheltered Housing complex.
The popularity soon grew, so did its membership and with the support of the townspeople and many local organisations, a major fundraising campaign was launched and the current Centre was built. In the past 30 years many people have enjoyed the care and companionship that was Bob’s dream – a reality that remains true to this day.
