I recently received the sad news that Fleur passed away last Thursday at her daughter Marcella’s home. Both her daughters Marcella and Jessica were with her at the time. She had been ill for some time but it still came as a shock to many of us.
Quite a few of you will have known Fleur both as a former Chairman of the Club as well as a competing athlete. Although principally a middle distance runner Fleur would regularly turn out for the Club in the Midlands Veterans Track and Field League and compete in many different events (running, throwing and jumping) to gain points for the Club.
She holds the over 60s club records for the 400m, 800m and the Long Jump which she set in 2012. She will not be forgotten.
The funeral will be at 11.00am on Wednesday 15 July at Sutton Coldfield Crematorium and a reception from 1200 at The Royal, B72 1UD. Marcella has told me that Club Members are welcome and I have agreed to let her know of the likely numbers so she can advise The Royal. If you intend to go and are not in direct contact with Marcella and Jessica please can you advise me accordingly.
