The Regional Council were delighted to see that Her Majesty the Queen has made Mrs Di Ellis CBE (former Chairman of British Rowing) a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the birthday honours. Martin Humphrys Chairman of the region stated – I know of no-one who deserves this honour more than Di – she has worked tirelessly for our sport, over a period in excess of fifty years. We in the Thames Region, more than most, owe her a great debt of gratitude for all she has done. Her efforts to place rowing at the forefront of British sport succeeded with our many Olympic successes and now we are delighted to see she has herself gained the "Gold" she deserves - this certainly puts a seal on all of the sport's achievement over the past year.
The Thames Region is represented at a National and Regional level by nine elected representatives allocated over three sub-regions.
The Regional Council has divided the sub-regions into divisions and has named those divisions after tributaries of the Thames.
