Bob Shire will be 99 on Wednesday. I am pretty sure he is the village’s oldest resident. If you can spare a few moments to say Happy Birthday, lunchtime or afternoon would be the best time to drop in to see him at Ford.
Alternatively, you can always pop a card into the shop, and Nadine will take it up to Bob on Wednesday when she comes to help him in the morning. This photo of Bob playing bowls was taken just a few months ago. Bob was still playing croquet last summer, and although he decided to give up driving his beloved Mazda MX5 recently, he is quite fit and very busy with his model making, and still enjoys a little tipple of whisky!
