Obituary - George Fensom
It is with sadness that I have to inform members of the passing on Monday 29th January of one of the founder members of Spenborough & District A.C. Mr. George Fensom at the age of 96 years. George was a committee member, organiser, field judge, equipment sorter, maintenance adviser, and many other things up until the age of 80 years plus, when he retired, but still popped in now and then. He was also instrumental, whilst a member of the old Spenborough District Council, of voting to have money spent on a tartan track at the now Princess Mary Sports stadium, before the closure of that council and the transfer of its assets to the now Kirklees Council.  Our thoughts are with his wife Jenny also a founder member, and her family.

Obituary - Sheila Bolland
Spenborough & District A.C. is deeply saddened to announce the death of Sheila Bolland, one of our best known and loyal members.
Sheila was known for her irrepressible enthusiasm for the sport not just at our club but across the district, county and the north of England both as a competitor and official.
She was a stalwart at Spen and Yorkshire AA dispensing sandwiches, drinks, advice, humour and orders at every level.
Sheila always had a kind word, a big smile and a joke for everyone on every occasion. 
Our thoughts are with Sheila’s husband Trevor, children and grandchildren. Sheila was a one off, an absolutely wonderful lady and she will be very much missed.
