It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Dr Colin Fleetcroft on the morning of Sunday 26th January. His passing comes after a long and difficult illness. He was much loved and will be greatly missed. If you would like to pass a message to the family please do so through The Mill.
The family will be arranging a memorial/fundraiser for Dr Fleetcroft in the summer, this will be open to all but the funeral will remain small. Details regarding the memorial will follow in due course.
In the meantime, a few patients have enquired about making a donation, if you wish to make a donation in Dr Fleetcroft's name then the family would like for these to go to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
