Colin Pitchforth

It is with great regret that Gainsborough Dolphins Swimming Club, on behalf of the family, announce the death of Colin Pitchforth, affectionately known to all as Mr P, who sadly passed away in the early hours of the morning on August 10th after his long illness.

Colin had been ill with cancer for sometime withdrawing from teaching/coaching at the club at the end of last year.

Mr P as we all know was a larger than life character and will always be remembered as the voice of the poolside in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire and beyond.

I am sure the swimming community throughout the County and East Midlands joins the club in offering our thoughts, prayers and support to the family at this the most difficult of times.

Please visit our tribute to the Late, Great Mr P and feel free to share comments and memories in our online book of remembrance.

Thank you
Nigel Stevenson
