|John and his Fan Club !|
With a message of congratulations from patron Helen Glover and a guest appearance, speech and ribbon cutting by none other than BBC sports presenter John Inverdale the club feel their star is rising. We were also very fortunate that 'The GODS' mens 4 made a special appearance to add a little sparkle to the event.
Tara Sexton the club’s junior representative (age 18) gave the main address thanking sponsors, donors and members for enduring 2 years of what was termed ‘austerity Minerva’ with all money being directed to the project; she was followed by British Rowing Start athlete Frazier Christie who talked of the difference the facilities will make to the Start athletes who train out of Minerva.

It is business as usual next weekend when crews take to the water for training, with plenty of races to work for including the biggest women’s eight race on the tideway, Wehorr.
