In Memoriam - Club President Bob HIll

KETTERING CC is mourning the loss of club president Bob Hill, a stalwart of the local time trial community.

Joining Kettering Friendly CC back in 1947, Bob timed his first event, a club hill climb at Rockingham, that year to begin a lifetime of service to Kettering and local cycling clubs.

He became club secretary in 1948 and, always prepared to step in if there was a shortage of someone to fill a role, over the years served as racing secretary, time trial secretary, treasurer, chairman and, from 2006, president

When the Kettering club promoted its first track meeting at Wicksteed Park in 1949, Hill acted as commentator, a job he made his own throughout the life of the track, and as an organiser he ran the GHS national schoolboys time trial championship in 2000 in which a certain Mark Cavendish finished eighth.

He was also a member of the South East Midlands District committee for several years, and will be remembered by many as a prolific timekeeper - holding the watch for both the men's and women's 50-mile championships in, respectively, 1995 - marking Kettering Friendly's 50th anniversary - and 1998.

A winner of the Merit Award for services to the club, Bob was timekeeper at nearly all of Kettering CC's time trials from its inception in 2000 up until suffering health issues a couple of years ago, and he remained an ever-present at club functions.

Away from cycling, Bob's other sporting passion was snooker - where he served as a referee - and he was also a keen model railway enthusiast.

Condolences are extended to Bob's wife Brenda, Bev and all of his family.
