It is with deep sadness that we learn of the passing of Spalding RFC Chairman Geof Nichols who had been fighting a courageous battle against illness for the past 18 months.
During that time Geof’s drive and enthusiasm to lead the club never diminished and they are indebted to him for his remarkably long and consistent period of dedication to the Club. All through the very successful years and some of the difficult times Geof has been a dependable and guiding influence. He always realised that the Rugby Club needed the combination of good governance and good fun. Geof will be greatly missed by club members and the wider rugby family, particularly in the NLD area where he was held in such high regard.
Geof’s funeral details have now been confirmed.
On Wednesday 10th February there will be a private family cremation followed by a Service of Thanksgiving to take place at St Mary’s Church , Pinchbeck, NR Spalding, Lincs at 12.30pm
This will be then be followed with refreshments for everyone at Spalding Rugby Club, Memorial Field, St Thomas’s Rd, Spalding PE11 2TT
The family requests family flowers only please. Donations if desired divided between Marie Curie, St Barnabas Hospice, Leukaemia Research, Rotary Foundation, & Spalding Rugby Football Club.
