Honoured to accept rowing museum role
Published 13/07/08



A former Black Watch army captain has been made deputy chairman of Henley’s River & Rowing Museum Foundation.

Paddy Nicoll ran a security company in Baghdad and now has a furniture company in Hampshire. Mr. Nicoll, who is the son-in-law of chairman of trustees Sir Martyn Arbib and whose children go to school in Henley, said: “I am honoured to have been given this role and look forward to working with the team at the museum, especially as it is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

“I am particularly committed to reinforcing the strong community, charity, sporting, business and social links that we already have within Henley, while at the same time building the national and international reputation that the museum has established.

“In an Olympic year we have even more opportunities and we look forward to good news from Beijing.”

Sir Martyn said: “I am absolutely delighted that Paddy Nicoll has accepted the role. Paddy is a very popular member of the Henley community. He has already contributed a tremendous amount to the success of the museum, including establishing the Henley 100 Club, where members make an annual charitable contribution to the museum.


“The Henley 100 Club supports the Invesco Perpetual Henley Gallery and its related education activities.”
