The owner of the Wensum Valley Hotel Golf and Country Club, Mr Basil Todd, sadly passed away in August following his long fight against cancer. A Memorial Service was held at St Nicholas Church, Dereham on 15th September attended by a large congregation of friends and family.
Basil was well known to Elmham residents for his personal efforts to improve the environment at Billingford Lakes, which he saw as being of considerable benefit to the local community.
As Life President of the Spirit of Coltishall Association (SoCA) he was also instrumental in actively pursuing the planned heritage improvements at the former RAF Coltishall base.
His sad and untimely passing will be a great loss not only to his family but also to all those who supported his environmental aspirations.
