Funeral of local legend Jack Reynolds to take place today

The funeral of legendary Chesterfield resident Jack Reynolds takes place this afternoon.

Jack raised thousands for charity in recent years, as well as smashing numerous world records, before he passed away at the age of 108 last month.

The Hollingwood man, who used to work as a foreman at Staveley works, was also given a Peak FM lifetime achievement award back in 2017.

His family want those paying respects to stand on the hill near Brimington Crematorium at around 1:45pm, whilst adhering to social distancing measures.

They've also requested people wear Jack's favourite colour blue, if they're able to.
