|It is with sadness that I have to report the death of our Chairman, Tony Robinson earlier today, Friday 13th April.
Tony was elected Chairman by Trust Council at its meeting following last year's AGM and the illness that ended his life manifested itself only a few weeks after he took office.
For the past few years, Tony was the director responsible for developing our canal project at its eastern end.
Drawing upon considerable experience from a long career in business, he was very effective in matters both strategic and practical.
Tony's enthusiasm and commitment was first class and he was a pleasure to work with. His early death is a real loss to the Trust and his wisdom will be greatly missed.
I know that Karin, his wife, and the rest of the family would appreciate our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Ken Burgin – Chief Executive
Cotswold Canals Trust
