Turnbull moved to Suffolk two years ago after leaving the BBC to devote more time to his hobby of beekeeping and spend time with family and friends.
The Classic FM presenter was diagnosed with incurable prostate cancer in November 2017 and earlier this year he sent a poignant message to women competing in Ipswich’s Race for Life: don’t leave it too late to get checked for cancer.
He also chaired an event at the popular Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival in September.
