Help wanted with Coastal Rowing Open Day 28th July 10.00-16.00
Havant Borough Council have put together a series of events in order to get people over 50, who are inactive, to get active.
Its called Get up and Go... and the one of the elements is rowing in fixed seat coastal boats.
I have been helping them design the programme which will start an Open Day at Northney Marina on the 28th July running from 10am to 4pm; based at Unit 3 and using the St Ayles Skiffs operating from the pontoon.
The idea is to encourage people who are inactive, and have never rowed before, to have a go... explore the harbour and get socially interactive.
They will then be encouraged to then sign up for a 6 week Learn to Row course in a number of evenings over August/September. HBC are subsidising these courses.
The idea is they will then feel happy to join the Langstone Cutters Rowing Club.
Do you know of someone who might benefit?
Is anyone willing to give an hour or 2 on the 28th July to help out advise, row and guide these candidates?
If so, post here or email me at email@example.com
