Tributes to farming champion

Tributes have been paid to Norfolk farming champion and community stalwart David Papworth,   who died suddenly aged 73, at Tuttington Hall on Saturday, 18 August.

David was also a long-serving chairman of Tuttington and Burgh Parish Council and, aside from his county and country-wide service and commitment, he supported the local community with generosity and dedication.

He was there to clear back roads of snow, supply bales of hay for seating at a fete, loan a barbecue, cut a field, always without fuss or fanfare. A street party? A barn dance with fireworks? David would be at the core of organising and providing.

A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held in Norwich Cathedral on Tuesday, 25 September at 2pm.

He leaves a widow, Andra, and three children, Kit, Sarah and Jo, and six grandchildren.
