Involving Local Schools


  We are currently working on developing a programme with local schools to improve access to the sport. Our aim is to be able to offer rowing as an extra curricualr activity or to support those students taking PE as a GCSE or A level subject.  We welcome enquiries from any local schools who are interested in being involved, please contact the club secretary for more information.
