Bob’s Bench – Update

You may remember from the previous issue of Hinchley Wood Magazine that the residents of Lynwood Road Estate had organised a collection for a remembrance bench for Bob Filby, a well-known local resident who sadly passed away last year.

Residents collected nearly £1,000, which was matched by the Directors of the Residents’ Association. This enabled them to install two benches in memory of Bob on both sides of the Square.


On Saturday, 29th June, residents of Lynwood Road Estate and friends of Bob Filby from St. Christopher’s Church gathered to toast Bob and to install his benches.

They are now firmly ensconced in the Square and, hopefully, are being appreciated by all who wish to sit and enjoy the beauty of the Square.
