** Coronavirus update – 17th March 2020 **

It is with regret following an urgent meeting of the committee and taking into account the latest guidance from the government and British Rowing relating to the Coronavirus, that it has been decided to fully close Leicester rowing club for a temporary period and that Leicester Regatta has been cancelled.

The committee will be meeting via video link once a week to discuss any updates relating to the Coronavirus and how this will impact the running of the club.  Any updates will be communicated via email in the usual way, but for now please stay away from the rowing club until told otherwise.
