Fond memories as tributes are paid to Keith accident victim

A MORAY SCHOOL has opened a book of remembrance following the tragic death of a youth worker in a road accident near Keith last week.

Tributes have been pouring in from family, friends and colleagues of Angie Spalding, who died on Friday after a car crash on the A96 just a few miles from her home.

Several friends and colleagues paid tribute to Angie on insideMoray’s social media page yesterday, including Fiona MacDonald who said: “My thoughts, sympathy and condolences go to Angie’s family.

“We went to Moray College together and she was always such a wonderful caring person and had time to stop and chat.”

Sarah Fagan added: “Thoughts with the family – hadn’t met Angie but had a few chats over the phone, she worked with my son, niece and nephew and they spoke highly of her, a lovely lady [and] sure she will be sorely missed.”

Mrs Spalding worked with pupils at several Moray schools including Forres Academy and Elgin High School, where a book of remembrance has been opened.

Head teacher Hugh McCulloch said: “Angie has worked for many years within the local community – most recently in her role with Quarriers, working as a life coach at the school.

“Angie’s care and compassion made a huge impact on the lives of many. A book of remembrance has been opened at the school for staff and students to share their memories of Angie. Our heartfelt thoughts go to Angie’s family at this time.”
