RIP Doug Fotheringham 1930 – 2018

VAC are sorry to hear of the passing of Doug Fotheringham at the age of 88. He was a life member of Belgrave Harriers, life member of Veterans AC, life member of Metropolitan Police Athletics Association, past secretary of Metropolitan Police Walking Club, past president Middlesex County AA, and on retirement from race walking continued to support events as a spectator despite living in Lincolnshire. He was also a Centurion qualifying in the 1965 Chigwell 100 miles. He is survived by sons Neal and Mark and three grandchildren.

Full tribute appears in the November edition of Enfield Walker including his innumerable achievements in world masters athletics, also shortly available on the Enfield League site: https://enfieldleague.weebly.com/

Doug's Funeral service will be at 2pm on Tuesday 11th December at the South Lincs Crematorium, Gosberton Road, Surfleet, PE11 4AA. The address for condolences is: 4 Clover Way, Spalding, Lincs, PE11 3GD.
