Following the sad death of Councillor Roger Bellham, the Mayor of Lowestoft, details of his funeral have been announced.
The funeral will take place at Gorleston Crematorium on Thursday 27 November at 3.20pm.
Cllr Bellham, who was the district councillor for St Margarets and had previously served as a member for the Kirkley ward, passed away on Saturday morning at the age of 71.
Although born and brought up in Northamptonshire, Cllr Bellham moved to Lowestoft over 40 years ago and enjoyed a long career working in the council's Parks Department. He was also the chairman of Lowestoft in Bloom and Aid & Assist, a Lowestoft-based charity which runs projects to help people with disabilities and learning difficulties.
Cllr Bellham's family have asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Louise Hamilton Centre and the renal unit at James Paget University Hospital.
