The club take the health and safety of all its members very seriously and have put procedures in place to ensure there is a safe environment for everyone both on the water and in the clubhouse. If you have any questions please speak with the Safety Officer (details below).
We are very lucky that we have a relatively safe river, but as with all water there are always hazards that need to be taken into account. If you do see anything of concern please raise it immediately with the Safety Officer.
In addition to the club advice we suggest that anyone going onto the water should also take the time to read British Rowing’s Rowsafe advice, follow the link www.britishrowing.org/about-us/policies-guidance/rowsafe.
During the Covid-19 crisis we have been carefully monitoring government guidance as well as guidance issued by British Rowing. We have developed and put into action club protocols that will help us to ensure that we all stay safe when we are training. All members have had this guidance shared with them, they are available to view below, and there is also clear signage in the club related to this. From the 21st July we updated our policy in line with the advice from British Rowing.
We ask that all members carefully read the guidance below before attending any training. If you have any questions or concerns please speak with our safety officer.
