Peter Robins, RIP
The members of Winterton Parish Council, past and present, wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Peter Robins following his untimely passing on Saturday 4th March 2023.
Peter was one of Winterton-on-Sea’s greatest champions and we recognise his enormous, and likely irreplaceable, contributions to the village. He promoted the beauty of Winterton through the website and the social media presence he created and managed - supported many local groups and businesses by providing their websites and social media posts - and started the village newsletter with his wife Tina as editor in 2021, as the village emerged from Covid. It has been described as the best village newsletter in the county, of which some editions were paid for by Peter and Tina themselves. His photographs perfectly captured our landscape, residents and local events and he generously donated the photograph that we hold in our village hall taken last year at the Queen’s Jubilee Beacon celebration. As a photojournalist, he had an eye for a photo opportunity, and we now doubly treasure the images he has left us.
He was a member (and promoter) of Winterton-in-Bloom, Friends of Horsey Seals, the Lifeboat Restoration fund and the Film Club. He attended our Holy Trinity and All Saints church and supported (and promoted) church events. Through the News and Blog pages on the wintertononsea.co.uk website and then through the newsletter, he detailed the deliberations of the parish council and ensured our information was distributed to residents. We are so grateful to Peter and Tina for their work in highlighting the joys (and sometimes, trials) of living in Winterton-on-Sea. We will miss Peter and his camera enormously and are very grateful for all he did for the village and its residents.
Our thoughts are with Peter’s wife, Tina, and their sons for the family’s shocking loss. A light has gone out in Winterton-on-Sea too soon, and we all mourn its passing – Rest In Peace, Peter.
The Winterton Parish Council will no longer be holding surgeries every month.
Surgeries will be held in the Village Hall, as and when required.
They will provide an opportunity for the community to talk about local matters, projects and share ideas
