New boathouse appeal with Zac Purchase

On Thursday we launched our new boathouse appeal with the help of Olympic champion Zac Purchase who gave an inspiring talk and answered questions from the audience.  We all tried on his silver and gold medals and listened to him enthusiastically describing what it took to be the best. The evening was a great success. More photos

A big THANK YOU goes out to Zac, all those involved with organising the event and all those who attended. Stay tuned for more on our boathouse soon.Zac with members of the commitee

Flooding on the news

BBC Oxford TV recently did a piece about flooding on the Thames, and when they wanted to film the effects of flooding on local river users, they came down to Gatehampton for an interview. It ‘s just a pity that they were there because, once again we are flooded, although this time it’s much less severe than it was last year.
