It is with sadness that we report the passing of Peter Wood, who was President of the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce 1993-1994. Peter was a stalwart of the Chamber of Commerce for many years and as Manager of Beechwood Place Arcade was a well known public figure in Cheltenham.
Peter took over the Chamber as President when it was restored from the Gloucestershire Chamber of Commerce in 1993. He kindly allowed the executive meetings to be held in his office at Beechwood Place.
He was a true gentleman in all senses of the word with a great sense of humour and wit. This was aptly shown in his quote, “My glass is not half empty. It’s not half full, it’s not big enough!”
May he rest in peace.
Brian Chaplan, Vice President, Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce
