Floral tributes offer to tragic school teacher
Former students of a much-loved teacher have been invited to lay flowers in his memory.
David Nicklin, 54, died last week after a short battle with leukaemia.
He taught at Fleetwood High before becoming assistant headteacher at Collegiate High.
He latterly worked with youngsters with extra learning needs at Educational Diversity, which has a base at the Athena Centre in Whitegate Drive.
Headteacher Wendy Casson said: “Any ex-students who like like to pay tribute are invited to lay flowers at our Athena Centre on Whitegate Drive at the side of the Tesco Garage.
“We will have a condolence book in the reception area for people to leave a message.
“Please come to Athena during the afternoon of July 12 or between 9.00am and 3.30pm on July 13.”
A private funeral for Mr Nicklin is scheduled for 1.15pm at Carleton Crematorium on Friday July 14.
His wife Lindsay said last week: “Thank you to everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers at this very sad and difficult time.”
