It is with deep regret and sadness that I have to inform you of the death earlier today of Councillor, and Mayor of Lowestoft, Roger Bellham.
His family have asked for the time and space to grieve their sad loss.
We have lost a distinguished comrade and friend who served his beloved Lowestoft as a true public servant over many years.
He will be greatly missed.
Cllr Sonia Barker
Leader of the Labour Group on Waveney District Council
