We are very sorry to have to report the death of Jim Sheldon on Thursday 8th November 2018, at home. He was 87 years old.
Jim is thought to have spent all his working life at BAe. He worked in the Tool Room at Strand Road before moving to the Model Shop at Warton.
A very good tennis player and coach, he still played into his late seventies as a member of the Broughton Tennis Club. Jim's national service was served in Singapore, working on Sunderland flying boats. He visited Japan many times while out there.
The funeral will be on Friday 23rd November at 10:00 am at the RC Church on Hoyles Lane (I think it's called St Andrews). All are invited to the reception at the Broughton Tennis Club.
