15 Jan Bob Hobbs has Passed Away
It is with great sadness that we have to report the news that Bob Hobbs died this morning, in hospital. Bob was at one time Master of the Guild and a life member. When Andrew Hall, the current Master of the Guild, first started his career as a blacksmith some 35 years ago he took great inspiration from Bob and Mike Sulley who were at that time making amazing figurines.
Bob was the main contributor to the guilds Frank Day Trophy amongst many other great pieces of work.
Bob was a Gold medal holder from the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths, a testament to his dedication to the world of blacksmithing.
He will be truly missed and our thoughts go out to his wife, Sandra, and the rest of his family.
