6th February 2014


With the rain continuing to fall and red boards still displayed throughout the entire length of the river, our chances of a New Year Cruise any time soon look slim. Neverless, your committee have now put together a great events schedule for the year. We also plan to include other shorter more impromptu trips so we hope that there will be plenty of opportunities to get out on the water as the year unfolds.

Attached with this e mail is an invitation for you to renew your membership for 2014. I hope that all of you will do so and that some of those who have let their membership lapse will be tempted to return to the fold. You will of course be very welcome.

Best wishes

Andrew Kirkwood
