New Site at Mirfield is taking Shape

If you haven’t seen on facebook there has been a lot of work at Battyeford. Following agreeing access and securing £12,500 we have started to build the landing stage.

We hope to have the landing stage finishes to enable sessions to take place over the summer.

We are going to install three containers on site one for rowing, one for racing, and one for polo and recreation.

The rowing section is rapidly Gathering a fleet of rowing boats thanks to generous donations from clubs across the country and British Rowing.
