Highlights from this month’s committee meeting:
The two single sculling boats recently purchased by the club are to be named Gwyn Evans and Bonner Davies.
We will shortly be advertising a paid, part-time club coaching position. The position will be funded by the Sport England ‘Return to Play’ grant that the club recently obtained.
The Captain’s Virtual Dinner was a success - fun was had by all and the auction and raffle raised £645 for club funds.
Thank you to Howard Websdell for organising the Virtual Dinner
Thank you to Stuart Gillies, Duncan Little and Adam Wilson for the work carried out to club facilities including the outside scaffolding area, to make sure we were ready for the return to row following lockdown.
Thank you to Chloe Sheward for the work done to get the club back out on the water.
Personal belongings – please take care
Unfortunately there has been a theft from the club this weekend with a bag being taken from the hard standing. It’s suspected that it was taken by a non-member coming onto the premises. All members are encouraged to bring only what’s needed to sessions. Please also shut the gates behind you to deter anyone from wandering in. If exercising at a time when no one else is around please lock up whilst you are on the water & take keys with you.
Racing – have you renewed your Licence?
As COVID restrictions ease and we welcome a return to racing don’t forget you’ll need a British Rowing licence if you want to compete. You can renew using this link Join British Rowing Today - British Rowing
As well as allowing you to race BR membership provides insurance cover which is handy if you steer or cox. We anticipate that any regattas that go ahead this year will fill up quickly. If you don’t renew your Licence in good time, it will delay submitting your race entry and increases the risk of missing out because the event is over-subscribed.
