It is with deepest regret that Mansfield Harriers share the sad news of the death of Life Member John Tomlinson.
John passed away in hospital on Friday 16th September. He was aged 94.
A committed member of Mansfield Harriers for over 75 years John served the club enthusiastically and unselfishly in many ways; athlete, coach, team manager, track judge and committee member. John also represented Mansfield Harriers on Notts AAA.
Three of John’s proudest moments included: being instrumental in the founding of the Notts Mini League, being team manager of Mansfield Harriers when the club was promoted in to the British Athletics League and attending the club’s Centenary Anniversary Dinner in 2020.
A funeral service is to be held at Mansfield Crematorium on Friday 7th October at 11-15am. Relatives have asked for floral tributes from the family only and that any donations in memory of John should be made to Cancer Research.
