We are sad to learn from Jill McVann that Bob Wilcox died late last night, having contracted Covid-19 in his Abergavenny nursing home.
Many in the village will remember Bob in his role as a local councillor and as headteacher of our village primary school.
Bob will always be remembered for the part he played in village life – he was recently seen in the video of 1995’s VE Day celebrations shown to mark the 75th anniversary – and all he did for Grosmont.
With thanks to everyone in the village who contributed to the slide show below.
With many thanks to Patrick Boyd for the majority of the photographs and to other people who have also contributed to the slideshow below.

IN THE CHURCH PORCH NOW.
Plan a celebration:
VE Day Commemoration Events
- 11am — Two-minute national silence to remember the declaration of victory and the end of the Second World War in Europe.
- 2.45pm – 3.45pm — The first of two special BBC One programmes to mark VE75, including extract from Sir Winston Churchill’s victory speech delivered at 3pm on VE Day.
- Afternoon — Britons encouraged to hold 1940s-style afternoon tea parties at home rather than street parties, including homemade bunting and recipes from the era.
- 9pm — Address by the Queen followed by national doorstep rendition of Dame Vera Lynn’s We’ll Meet Again.
