It was with great sadness that the Heritage Centre learned of the death of one of its founder member trustees Rob Hayward.  Rob was a dedicated (some would say fanatical) conservationist and fought for the preservation and restoration of landmark buildings, including the Heritage Centre through his role as Conservation Officer with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council.  He became a Trustee and Secretary of the Centre after he left the council and his advice and depth of knowledge proved invaluable over the years.  Our deepest sympathies go out to his lovely wife Sue and the family.

Our Chairman, Mr John Burton said,”It is difficult to over-estimate the contribution Rob made to the Coton Heritage Centre. He was working at the time as the NBBC Conservation Officer when Beryl Kerby started her campaign to save the building in 1988.  Rob came to local government late, after a career as an architect and lecturer at Leicester, so he knew what he was talking about and was always a support to Beryl and everyone at the Centre.  He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.”

Thank you for everything Rob, Rest in Peace.
