Dear members,

The committee proposes to hold this year's Annual General Meeting on the afternoon of Saturday June 26, at the club premises in the open air (for covid reasons) if weather permits or indoors if necessary. We plan to follow the AGM with a social event -- ideally a barbecue  (again, weather permitting) -- so members can get together and celebrate the arrival of summer and a return to some degree of social normality.

A top item on the AGM agenda will be a resolution to push ahead the clubhouse renewal project. To guide the committee in preparing this resolution we are opening a consultation area and chat room in the club website offering three different  possible versions of a new clubhouse. Please look, discuss and then vote in an indicative poll to show which version has most support. The committee will be guided by your votes.

To access the consultation area please follow this link: https://www.lewesrowingclub.co.uk/clubhouse/

Below is a message from Chairman Brendon Parsons, with a fuller explanation.

URGENT CLUBHOUSE APPEAL: All members are keenly invited to view exciting plans for a new LRC clubhouse. 

After years of discussion, dispute, debate and research, committee has identified three variants offering a range of amenities at a corresponding range of costs. The committee favours the self-build version designed by club member Ben Fowler, which we believe offers our club a fantastic new home that is affordable, admirable and achievable. Now we need you, our members, to take a look and give us your view and hopefully your support - in time for a final decisive vote at AGM on June 26. 

See the pictures, read the views of three teams who have looked into design, membership wants and needs and - critically - the costs and funding options. 

Have your say in the  dedicated chatroom on our website -  ask questions, contribute comments and ideas.  In a week or so, we will launch an online poll. This is your club, and your future - so please follow this link now and be inspired with us. Thank you, Brendon, chairman.
