Tim Williams awarded British Rowing’s North West Lifetime achievement award.

Grosvenor Rowing Club, Chester would like to congratulate Tim Williams on this well-deserved lifetime achievement award. Tim joined Grosvenor as a young man in the 1970’s and rowed for many years to Senior A level, before taking on the role of coach. He coached novice & senior women with Sue Bein from 1990-94 and remains in touch with the core of this squad today.  He coached the first crew from Grosvenor to a Veteran World Championship in Cologne in 1994.

Tim was the Captain of Grosvenor Rowing Club, Chester from 1983-1986 and the Chairman of Grosvenor Rowing Club, Chester from 1995 – 2004. He has also held the positions of club secretary and chairman of the Dee Autumn Head committee. 

Tim has played and still plays an active role in organising Dee Autumn Head events and has been a well-respected Umpire and multi lane umpire for many years.

His career in construction meant he volunteered to become the build project manager when the first floor of the gym was built. This is, to date, the largest single investment in the club’s history. Other notable tasks include his update of the original club constitution.

Tim is an active advocate of involvement in Grosvenor Rowing Club, umpiring, British Rowing and the North West Regional Rowing Council. He is a truly admirable volunteer. He nurtures and supports others to achieve their goals whether that be rowing, umpiring, event management or at Club Committee level. He never seeks accolades, recognition or gain. Tim is truly altruistic with his time and efforts for the sport of rowing. Congratulations Tim!
