R.i.p. Ann Froggatt - Wakefield (Leeds Central Regular 1970S)

Recommended Posts

It is with a heavy heart and deep regret, that I have inform you of the passing of a dearly loved friend and a former 'Leeds Central Soul Club' regular, namely 'Ann Froggatt'.

Ann was highly thought of and respected in the 'Leeds Central' circle of friends in the 1970s and will be dearly missed by many who were close to her.

Ann's funeral will take place at Barnsley Crematorium at 12pm this Thursday the 3rd of May.

All that knew her are invited to pay their respects.

Condolences go out to her family and friends.

RIP Ann Froggatt.

I used to know Ann quite well in the 70's after meeting her at Leeds Central and Cleethorpes.

She was always good company and a really nice girl.

Such sad new's. R.I.P Ann

I know this is going to appear as a plug for the next Central, but believe me it isn't, it is in respect for Ann who was a big part of the Central in the 70s, and many people, including myself, who still go, will have known her and will be saddened by this news.

At the next Central Alldayer, we will be having a 1 minutes silence for Ann, which will be very poignant as it will be held as usual inside the very walls where Ann used to frequent back in the 1970s.

Also I have been informed that Ann may have been from Wakefield not Barnsley, so I have amended the heading to this post. I never went to Ann's house, and only saw her at various Soul events around the country, so I am uncertain as to which town she was actually from. If anyone knows for sure please let me know and I will amend the post heading with the correct town.

R.I.P. Ann.

How very sad & even sadder that we let the years slip away not seeing each other, I met Ann at Leeds Central 72/73 & she became a good friend of us Goolies, we spent many happy times with her around Leeds, Pontefract etc & some unforgettable Bank Holidays in Scarborough or Torquay, she kept in contact with Gail's sisters & they went out the odd time but shame on us we always seemed busy or away, she was a top girl & will be missed,our thoughts are with her family,God speed. :hatsoff2:

Take care, be safe & remember,"Memories are sweet but touching base is better",

Spot & Gail. :shades:
