The community has rallied around to give a 90 year-old RAF veteran a birthday he will never forget. Wing Commander Robert (Bob) Jones of Pembroke Dock turned 90 on Thursday, surrounded by cards, gifts, balloons, food and drink kindly gifted by local residents and businesses. The incredible community effort swung into action to ensure Bob wasn’t alone on his birthday after his planned party had to be cancelled because of coronavirus. Bob lives alone and has no family locally but a celebration to mark his special day had been planned at his favourite café. Bob’s family were devastated when the party had to be cancelled but contacted to see if the cafe could organise for some cakes to be delivered. But the cafe decided to go a step further and amassed cards, children’s posters and drawings, gifts and well wishes. Happy Birthday Bob!
