Club mark: SW currently working with JS to double check all documents in light of new criteria to meet Club Mark. SW to chase BR for safeguarding training for those involved.
KH in process of getting a second quote for the driveway into the club. First quote was about £2000. £500 for gate to bridge, £500 for car park and another £1000 from bridge to around the back of the gym. Work to be carried out includes levelling and topping and the car park area levelled.
It was proposed to sell on the blue mesh trailer as it has not been used for some time. We have the two others which get used ahead of that one. Money raised through the sale will be invested back into the club towards sculls racks without hindering the club’s competing ability.
The double: Jennifer is to be repaired, quote at about £1200.
Soar ahead is returning from refurbishment.
