It is with sadness that we announce announce that Doug Fotheringham, a Belgravian since 1953, died peacefully at home last Sunday.
Doug was a member of the Metropolitan Police, rising to the rank of Inspector, and for many years a chairman of the Met Police RWA.
He was a past President of the Middlesex County AA, Southern Area Race Walking Association and National Race Walking Association.
His walking career spanned many years from being a young PC through to competing around the world in veterans events. A regular member of Belgrave’s teams, Doug was always there as a strong team player. Doug also became a Centurion, completing the 100 miles in 21:31:09 at Chigwell in 1965 over a tough ten-lap course.
Funeral details are yet to be released but will be in Spalding in due course.
