Congratulations to John Timpson

17 Jun 2017

John Timpson, chairman of the cobbler and key repairer that bears his name, has been knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Congratulations to John Timpson

The T&RA are delighted to report the wonderful news that John Timpson, Manchester Tennis and Racquets Club, was recognised for his services to business and fostering.  He and his late wife Alex, who died in January 2016, fostered some 90 children over 31 years.

John said, “I receive this honour with great pride and a certain amount of sadness. I was very much the junior partner on the fostering front, and my late wife Alex also had a fundamental influence on all that I’ve done in business, so I’m bound to regret that she’s not alongside me to be properly recognised as Lady Alex."
