The President's Fundriasing Dinner and action was a huge success with £45,161 raised. A number of the auction items raised really good sums.

Sir Steve, MRC's President, said: "After a very successful President's Dinner and spring seems to be here with the sun shining, the new Watersports Hub is now taking shape and the light at the end of the tunnel of the last two and a half years starting with the trauma of the fire, can finally be seen. March is the month that everything seems to be happening. The concrete over-site was laid and within days the steel sub-frame was erected; very exciting and it won't be long before we are back rowing out from the club. The club's spirits I feel have held up well since the fire. There is certainly a buzz now. We can physically see something happening."
