BBRC COVID-19 Update

Dear Bewlers,

 
Further to the email from Neil, our Club Rowing Safety Adviser, earlier in the week, I am writing again to update you, following a Committee meeting today, on the Club’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
 
We have taken in to account the Government’s current advice, British Rowing guidance, the rapidly developing situation not only here but also in Europe, and our responsibility to you as members and beyond.
 
Social distancing and avoiding non-essential gatherings, good hygiene and reducing the spread of the virus is key in all the official advice and its goals. Your Committee has considered a variety of options of how we can continue with some of our activities at the Club whilst achieving these key goals.  However, we came to the conclusion that it is impossible to achieve these goals, which are in the best interests of not just us all as members but also for the wider community, by continuing with any form of rowing and associated training at the Club. We reached this decision with a heavy heart but we believe we have no alternative.  
 
We have therefore suspended all rowing activities based at Bewl until further notice.  Virtual/remote sessions arranged by coaches will still take place as arranged.  The Committee will review this decision at the end of this month.  We would be grateful if you could respect this decision and do not attempt to go out until advised otherwise by the Committee.
 
I realise that you will all be incredibly disappointed by this decision.  However, I hope that you understand it, as we are in extraordinary times and therefore need to take extraordinary measures.  
 
Regards,
 
Angus
Captain
 

 

                  WELCOME TO                       BEWL BRIDGE ROWING CLUB  

Bewl Bridge Rowing Club is located within the picturesque grounds of Bewl Water Reservoir, eight miles south east of Tunbridge Wells.
 

Bewl Water offers more than 4km of spectacular uninterrupted water for rowing and sculling. Club members have access to a comprehensive range of Club boats, a dedicated rowing pontoon and private boat storage, together with showers and changing facilities.


Founded in 1977, we  are very much a 'Club for all’ with a great positive and supportive atmosphere. We currently have approximately 150 members, from age 12 upwards. We have a large Junior squad, and thriving Ladies, Men's and Masters squads, all supported by a strong team of volunteer qualified coaches, launch drivers and helpers.  New members are always welcome, whether recreational or competitive.


We regularly 'trailer' to local and regional regattas. Club members currently represent Great Britain at both rowing and sculling and have achieved Regional and National success in both disciplines.
