Robert John Blake 

21.3.56 – 19.12.14

The passing of Robert is a sad loss to the Parish. As a much respected and knowledgeable member of the Parish Council he was always aware of the latest news and views of the village.

He had lived in East Anstey for most of his life so was able to advise us on items of historical interest.

During his time on the Council he served as Vice-Chairman and was Chairman for a short time.

The village fete was organised by him for a few years and his ideas were behind other village projects. It will be very difficult to replace him

We would like to send a message of condolence to Jenni and family
