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!
