Well done girls!

17 tons of excavator made short work of levelling the site! After one day, hardcore was already going down.  Racks have been put back and new racks built.  The site now looks immense.

You can view more photos of the big dig in the photo gallery.

Thanks to all the hard work by members clearing the site over the last two weekends, the machine had a clear run at it.

Double Olympic medalist Zac Purchase will be making two visits to Isle of Ely Rowing Club as part of a Learn to Row course.

He will be visiting Ely as part of the scheme to get 17 to 25-year-olds rowing, which is funded by a Sportivate grant.
