MR BOB ENTWISTLE
I am sure the people of Cosgrove will miss seeing Bob around the village.
He was passionate about things that would affect HIS village and the people who lived in it.
He would work quietly and tirelessly on matters of importance, especially planning matters. Even when faced with adverse reaction and apathy he never gave up where the village was concerned.
Many residents will perhaps never know just how many hours Bob put in, on their behalf, just trying to achieve a pleasant, safe environment for them and their families to live in.
If a litter bin needed emptying, a village seat repairing or painting, or salt spreading on the approach roads during the winter, while many argued that it wasn’t their job to do it, Bob would just get on and go and do it, because it affected all the village. All In all Bob was a great organiser, and if a job was to be done it had to be done 100% or not at all.
His great love of Bowling and other village activities were twinned with a pride that the teams belonged to COSGROVE, and Heaven help anybody who tried to belittle it!
This pride is soon to be remembered by the erection of his COSGROVE MILLENNIUM sign, which again he worked tirelessly at to achieve. Hopefully when the sign is finally in place it will act as a reminder to all the people of Cosgrove, old and new, that there was a very special resident who worked extremely hard, many times without the credit he deserved, on their behalf to protect and achieve the best for them, their families and Cosgrove itself.
THANK YOU BOB FOR ALL YOU DID
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE A.B.
