Brian Grimwood M.B.E.
The sailing club has received some brilliant news.
Brian Grimwood, a former club commodore has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours.
The honour is in recognition of all that Brian has done over ten years to build up Frensham Sailability.
Anyone who has seen the large fleet of Access dinghies and the excellent shoreside facilities cannot fail to be impressed. These are the visible signs, but there is a different story for all the disabled people, adults and children, who have had life changing experiences with sailing on our water. Members of our competitive Access team have travelled the length of the UK and brought back the national trophy four times as well as taking part in international competition in Europe and as far away as Australia. Anyone who has seen the happy faces of adults and children on a Sailability day will have no doubt of the joy that Frensham has brought to so many, sailors and helpers alike. And the credit must go to Brian.
