Obituary: Martin Colvill

Written by

Sadly, we report the death of Martin Colvill, co-founder with Bobby Bell of Martin and Colvill.  Martin passed away on Friday 4 March at Royal Surrey Hospital with his wife, Linda, at his bedside.  Bobby and Martin founded Bell and Colvill in 1970 renting a petrol station and garage workshop from Burmah Oil.  Over the years they built up the business to become one of the largest and most successful Lotus dealers in the country, in addition to acting as agents for a number of other prestigious car companies.  Martin had two great passions in life, fast cars and jazz.  A full history and appreciation of his life will appear in a future edition of the West Horsley Newsletter.  As we go to press, a memorial service in being planned.
