Mr Robert Wood

Age 18, Mr Wood (on far left) served in the RAF in Egypt for his national service and enjoyed it so much he stayed an extra year.  Pictured here with friends from Dursley.

In his 40s Mr Wood converted a derelict mill into a beautiful 20 seater cinema – popular in his local community near Dursley.  He achieved this alongside his career as a journalist and editor of local newspapers including founding the Cotswold Star.
