A memorial for Mike Rosewell

On Sunday 10th July from 11 am

At St Edward’s School, Oxford


This invitation goes out to anyone who knew Mike or benefited from his time, be it in the classroom, on the river, press box or in the comfort of your armchair reading his reports of local, national or international rowing.

Coffee will be served in the new Willows cafe at Teddies from 11.00am before moving into the Olivier Hall at 11.30am to hear contributions about Mike’s many walks of and outings in life. We will finish with a buffet lunch for which numbers are needed so, if you can attend, please register as soon as possible.

We wish to hear from anyone who has worked alongside, been taught, coached, informed or entertained by him. If you have a tale to tell or memory to cherish and can share it in writing or perhaps make a contribution on the day; we will incorporate as many as possible. Please submit an outline or a complete paragraph (or two) along with the context by email to [email protected]. We are able to include video submissions and will record the event for those committed elsewhere (so sorry that it clashes with Mike’s favourite international, Lucerne Regatta).

We would also like to create a photo montage of Mike and his crews for which a good digital image would be needed by the end of Henley Week - latest Monday 4th July. Send to [email protected] with source, context, name and date. Printed material will be welcome but please ensure we know to return or retain it.

Do please share this with anyone who you know would want to know and might be part of the celebration of this unique rowing and writing man.

Final details will be sent out to all those registered in week commencing 4th July.
