Curry Night – Sunday 23rd March

On Sunday the 23rd March we will be having a curry evening to raise money to pay for a repair on our RIB Grafton at the Tandoori Parlor, 61-63 Heart Road, Thundersley, SS7 3PB. We have done similar dinner fundraisers in previous years and it has always been successful and we hope to replicate that and you will be able to come and make it and enjoyable evening. The money will go towards extending Grafton’s drive shaft and left in its current state leaves it out of action for boating purposes and is a wasted resource.

Old Leigh Regatta AGM – 20th November 2013

Please find attached the notice for the Regatta AGM being held on the 20th November. As many of you are aware the Chairman Brian Baker and 5 other members of the Regatta Committee are stepping down after almost 20 years. The Regatta is a huge fundraiser for the Group and it will be a shame that due to lack of support it is cancelled, if anyone is able to help with the Regatta or has some new ideas on how is could be run please come along and show your support at the AGM.

Thank you!
