It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Dr Robert “Bob” Young who died peacefully at home with his family on Friday morning, 13 November 2015. Our sympathies are with his family at this time. As founder and committed patron of this web site, Bob will be dearly missed by us all.

The cortège route begins at 10:30 am on Monday 23 November 2015 at The Horseshoes, Little Thetford and travels along Main Street before continuing to the village cemetery. The family has asked those wishing to pay their respects to join them during Bob’s final journey.

The memorial service will be held at St George’s Church, Little Thetford on Tuesday 24 November 2015 at 12 noon.
